“When Leo came home, I felt he was so vulnerable that I didn’t want to leave the house. This made me feel very isolated. I spoke to other mums and they said they felt the same at first, but, by taking sensible precautions it was possible to start taking small trips out. Gradually, I began to feel that Leo was less fragile. We all want to protect our children but we need to find the right balance too.” 

Mum to Leo, born 28 weeks
