Knitting for premature babies

A washing line full of knittings and crochets for premature babies, knitted by the Stocksbridge Knit & Chat Group and Friends. Today they’re all catching some sunshine and tomorrow they will be given to the Neonatal Unit of the Jessops Children’s Hospital in Sheffield. You cannot see them all on the photo but there are blankets, hats, socks, coats and even (sadly enough that they’re needed) a few angel pockets.

    Premature birth is defined either as the same as preterm birth, or the birth of a baby before the developing organs are mature enough to allow normal postnatal survival. Premature infants are at greater risk for short and long term complications, including disabilities and impediments in growth and mental development. Significant progress has been made in the care of premature infants, but not in reducing the prevalence of preterm birth.“.`
