Charlie Jones, senior sales executive at Dunelm Glass, and her partner Craig are over the moon to welcome to the world their miracle baby Olivia-Grace Fletcher.
Born at an incredible 32 weeks weighing only 2lb 2oz, Olivia-Grace’s early arrival took the couple by surprise. Yet within two weeks she had grown to 2lb 14oz and was breathing on her own. Both mother and baby are doing well and Charlie and Craig are hoping to have Olivia-Grace home soon.
“Despite being eight weeks early, she’s doing very well now,” said sales manager Chris Smith. “She has been taken out of the high-dependency unit, she’s feeding well and gaining weight all the time. Charlie and Craig are obviously going in every day to get skin-to-skin contact and help to feed and bond with her.
“We’re all delighted for them and we know we’re certainly not the only ones. We sent out a mail shot to our customer base and we’ve had some really lovely responses come through, which we have forwarded on to Charlie. It’s been quite overwhelming. Many of them know her well, having been with us for more than ten years, and in a customer-facing role.
“We also want to say a big ‘thank you’ on Charlie’s behalf to the Sunderland Royal Hospital, Maternity Unit for their brilliant work.”
