025: JULIA TOIVONEN – FROM THE UNEXPECTED TO THE UNEXPECTED (PREMATURE BIRTH)
It was a normal work day. Julia was 27 weeks pregnant and nothing was out of the ordinary. Suddenly, everything changed and little did she know that this one moment would change the shape of her whole future. At 27 weeks, Julia delivered her first child, prematurely, leading him to have more than 100 night in hospital before going home. In this episode, Julia shares her story of experiencing premature birth unexpectedly and of then launching an online forum to provide others with the support she couldn’t find during this dark time.
