Help for Our Double Miracle

Help for Our Double Miracle

Personal message

Our journey of welcoming our double miracle into the world had a few extra bends and turns along the way. On the 6th of March, Ella made an early arrival at 29 weeks after I suffered a placental abruption.

She was ventilated immediately and transferred to the NICU. Whilst in the NNICU, Ella contracted the Respiratory Syncytial Virus which can be deadly in premature babies. Prem babies have under developed lungs, coupled with the fact that she missed out on important antibodies passed from me during the last three months of pregnancy, something as simple as cold can cause respiratory distress and re-hospitalization.

As a result of this we would do anything in our power to assist Ella’s immune system in anyway we can. There is a vaccine to help with this virus. The RSV season has just begun in JHB & extends until the end of August.

This vaccine should be given to high-risk babies every 28 days during RSV season which means that Ella will need to receive a total of 5 injections. These injections are incredibly expensive at over R10000 per shot.

She received her first injection whilst in hospital which was covered by the medical aid. All subsequent injections totaling more than R44000 will need to be covered by us. As you can imagine our expenses have been exorbitant over the last two years with IVF & Ella’s NICU stay.

Any donations helping us make sure Ella gets the vaccines she needs would be truly appreciated.
