World Prematurity Day is on the 17th November 2014 and Ickles Pickles Children's Charity need your help with their campaign.
They have come up with the idea of a virtual 'kangaroo huddle' where people post photographs of themselves cuddling their 'Ickle Pickle' no matter how old they are now. There is no limit to how many people can be included in the picture either.
All Ickle Pickles Children's Charity want you to do is email your #kangaroohuddle picture to email@example.com stating your child's name (or initial if you'd prefer), how many weeks gestation they were born and the hospital in which they were born. You can also tweet your photo to @IcklePickles using the hashtags #kangaroohuddle #worldprematurityday #borntoosoon & #kangaroocare
The charity will then share your photo in order to raise awareness of World Prematurity Day and the amazing work that neonatal teams do.
This is my #kangaroohuddle with C who was born at 33 weeks and started his life at the Royal Jubilee Maternity Hospital in Belfast.
