Small and Mighty Babies makes The National newspaper

A recent article in The National newspaper about baby Tala Othman who amazed her parents and doctors when she was born 11 weeks early, at 1.45 kilograms, encased in her amniotic sac.

Her Egyptian mother, Eman Ahmed, panicked when she saw her newborn still firmly curled in a foetal position in the sac – a bag of clear, pale fluid inside the womb where the unborn baby develops and grows and Ms Ahmed thought her daughter had not survived the birth.

When the article was published, baby Tala was still receiving care at the Sheikh Khalifa General Hospital in Ajman and I contacted the National to ask them to share the details of Small and Mighty Babies with the family in case they needed any support.  We were thrilled when the newspaper wanted to publish an article about our group and I hope you enjoy reading it. JPH-H


Small and Mighty Babies makes The National

From the day George arrived early into this world I have had a mountain of support around me. I never had any choice but to be strong, it was my only option. But at times, I just felt broken. I felt guilty, I felt numb and I felt empty. This support from family, friends and sometimes strangers encouraged me to turn these feelings into positive experiences and create Small and Mighty Babies. 

As I continue to work with parents to grow and build Small and Mighty Babies I have been introduced to some wonderful people who have in turn opened doors for me. Through my work with Sassy Mama I was introduced to Mitya Underwood at The National newspaper who I met to talk about all things Small and Mighty. JPH-H
