If you have ever been to your local hospital for scans, appointments, etc have you ever noticed the Neonatal unit? I hadn’t. I had been to my local hospital numerous times when I was pregnant for the second time. Consultant led care came with having twins so I was in the hospital often every two weeks.

**Trigger Warning – Baby Loss** Welcome back to my series I am the One in Four. Baby loss has become a huge part of this blog since losing my own baby in July 2016.
