PARENTS

Dads Showing Off Their #MiracleBabies Is The Sweetest Thing

A miracle baby is an infant who defies all odds and survives, despite encountering complications during pregnancy or at birth. We often hear these incredible stories, but rarely see the sweet moments shared between parent and baby following their health scares.

That’s why we’ve rounded up 20 Instagram photos of dads showing off their #miraclebabies in honour of Father’s Day. There’s really no sweeter bond than the one shared between a father and their child.

Meet Harrison, he was born at 27 weeks 6 days after his Mum went into spontaneous labour in her home town of Geelong. Harrison weighed 1.008kgs and spent 2 months at the Mercy before returning to Geelong Hospital where he continued to be cared for in SCN until the week of his due date. His family relied heavily on the resources of Mercy Health and Mercy Perinatal team during their stay away from home; including accommodation and the milk bank. His parents could not be more thankful! Harrison is now a strong healthy 3 year old with no long term issues. Thanks so much for sharing Bec. Help Alice to Sea raise awareness and money for Mercy Hospital NICU and Mercy Perinatal and their much needed research to ensure more babies make it home safely. 100% of all money raised is being donated Donate at https://www.gofundme.com/alicetosea #tanami #awareness #fundraiser #tanamitrack #alicetosea #prembabies #miraclebabies #mercyhospital
