... I realise that this is not my role here, I was able to spend time with a mother of a baby born overnight at 28 weeks gestation. This baby was swaddled completely and even the nose and mouth were covered in 3 blankets. I spent time with mum and examined the baby with her.

The other mothers in the room also ...
