Premature Birth & Illness, What Life Looks Like Now

View descriptionShare

When Alex Horder’s daughter Frankie entered the world two months early, she spent eight weeks in the NICU, but it would be another four months before they realised something wasn’t quite right. 

Frankie was having up to 300 seizures a day, and now time has passed, Alex opens up to us about her experience, and coming to terms with how life looks a little different then expected, and the one this she wants every parent to know.

Plus, our nails and fails which include low iron and singing lessons.
