World Prematurity Day is observed on 17 November each year to raise awareness of preterm birth and the concerns of preterm babies and their families worldwide. 

To mark World Prematurity Day, we want to introduce you to the amazing Freddie.

After being born at just 25 weeks, Freddie Halpenny spent 184 days in the hospital. During this time, Freddie battled lung and brain haemorrhage, three cardiac arrests and his parents Eimear and Eoin were called three times to say goodbye to him.

Eimear and Eoin have asked if you could kindly donate to Holles Steet Neonatal Unit this World Prematurity Day.
