We proudly present Paul Crossley, founder of 1in10, as our new blog writer!
"Hello Everybody! – My name is Paul and I am a NICU Dad on a mission to create a global (if I can take it that far) support community for families who have spent time or who are currently spending time on NICU with their child/children.
My Son Oliver was born in September 2016 at 29+2 weeks gestation at 2.2lbs and suffered a unilateral Grade 3 IVH prior to being born, during his time in NICU we tackled Hydrocephalus, 2 Brain Surgeries, hernia surgery and almost fatal pneumonia.
The idea for 1in10.org.uk came when I was searching for other parents going through something similar but unfortunately, I could not find anything, professionally I am a web developer, so I used my skills and knowledge to create what I needed when I was in NICU, for other families who might still be there now looking for the same thing as I was.
I look forward to telling you more about my experiences soon!
Since the parental perspective is so central to NICU care, we feel honoured that Paul connected with us and wanted to share reflections in a blog format.
@Paul looking forward to read your posts here!
The link to the 1in10 web site is https://1in10.org.uk/ - feel free to share it to parents in your NICUs!
