I Think This Is How I Cope

I did something kinda odd today. I cant tell my family, and I have not even told S because I know it will upset him. The rest of my family will just think I have lost the plot and that its totally unhealthy.

I have volunteered to the hospital Zak and I were sent to after he was born to be a ‘cuddle Mum’.

You help out in NICU with bubs that need physical contact. Babies that have to stay in hospital for weeks and months at a time don’t have their Mums and Dads there with them all the time.

So I’m waiting on a letter back from the hospital. I was honest and told them about Zak. And I’m guessing there is a huge chance I might look like some phsyco mother that’s out to steel someones baby. But it really has nothing to do with that at all. I just wanted to give something back to the hospital. I have worked with babies for many years and I ‘think’ I would be good at it.

Will see what they say before I tell S and my family about it. No use getting everyone upset if its never going to happen.

Also I wanted to thank you all for your replies to my last post. I feel better today. I think I was just tired and feeling really grumpy. I’m normally a much more understanding person. Just having a few odd experiences with people IRL as well as ‘net friends’.

  1. Oh B what a beautiful thing to do, I just don’t know where you pull all this courage from and thats what I love about you. Your never a me, me, me person, your always thinking of others. xx

  2. I think this is fantastic–it sounds like it’s something that will make you feel better. I know I couldn’t do it myself. But, if there is comfort for you, in comforting those little babies–then it is a win win situation. I think you are a very caring and generous soul. And this takes a lot of courage.

  3. I echo the 2 ladies above me, you are the most kind and caring person I know – to do something like this, even think about doing it, shows just how remarkable you are.

    Much love to you xxx

  4. i love this idea and hope you get the opportunity to spend some time with the babies this way.

  5. Hiya!

    I think that is a great idea. After reading your posts for the last few months I am sure you are strong enough to handle any emotions that we all would feel being close to the high care babies.

    Good luck, hope it turns out for the best.
