I’m the mother of Mathieu and Émile, two miracle babies awaited for 10 years, who decided to show up after only 28 weeks of pregnancy. We went through a roller coaster of emotions, including panic and the fear of losing our precious babies. I told myself that I hadn’t managed to keep them in my belly long enough, and I wondered what I could or shouldn’t have done to make it happen. Our friends and relatives sent us congratulations, but I didn’t feel like celebrating. I found the words to talk about my experience when I attended a Préma-Québec coffee hour. We spent 101 days at the neonatology department, and I went to four of those meetups. Every time, I received comfort and encountered a sympathetic ear. My babies are now seven and a half months old (four and a half corrected age) and they’re doing well.
