I was just getting used to the idea when, at my 12 week scan, I was told it was twins! The pregnancy was fine and I thought that I had at least 28 weeks to get used to the fact I was having two babies instead of one. How wrong could I be?

A Day in the Life of SCBU

First things first. There is no such thing as a typical day! Although our work revolves around premature and sick newborn babies and their families, no two days are ever the same.

The Special Care Baby Unit is officially funded to care for nine babies including one intensive care cot. However it has the capacity for fifteen babies and it is no longer unusual to have near enough that number and on some occasions even more.
