In the second film from the Small Wonders DVD, we meet three families, two who had time to prepare for life in a neonatal unit and one who had very little warning. We see three births, one of which is the birth of triplets, and we follow the babies being prepared for transfer to the neonatal unit.

The Small Wonders DVD was created by child health charity Best Beginnings to support families on the journey with their sick and premature baby. The Small Wonders DVD, with all 12 films on, is available for free for families and staff in neonatal units in England thanks to funding from the Department of Health. It will soon be available in neonatal units in Scotland and Northern Ireland thanks to funding from these nations.

If you are not in a neonatal unit where the Small Wonders DVD is given out, you can purchase a copy of the DVD at bestbeginnings.org.uk/Shop/small-wonders-dvd

We would really value your feedback on the Small Wonders films at smallwonders@bestbeginnings.org.uk
