THIS STORY IS AS TOLD BY LIZ GODDARD RE HER SON WILL:


Will's Story: Born at 22 weeks and 3 days
Feb 11, 2008
"My son, Will, was born in 1998 at 22 weeks 3 days. I understand that he is Britain’s earliest surviving baby. Will wasn't treated for a long time because of his gestation. I held him in the delivery suite for 7 hours with no intervention as we waited for him to die.The hospital took him down to the Special Care Baby Unit at 7 hours old. But Will wasn't actively treated until he was 36 hours old and that was after I had been told that he really had no chance of survival and if he did survive he would be severely disabled.If Will had died as he was expected to he wouldn't have even been classified as a live birth but as a late miscarriage which meant that I wouldn't have been able to register his birth and death. Will is now nearly 10 years old, has no disabilities or after effects whatsoever and is among the brightest in his class. If he can survive, then so can others.Liz Goddard "
