Saving Babies

There is a new TV show starting in february on channel 10 called "Saving Babies" hosted by Kim Watkins. Its an RPA-like observational series filmed at Sydney’s Royal Hospital for Women.

I really cant wait for it to start as when i was younger i dreamed of being a Neonatal Intensive Care Nurse. Those babies are all so tiny and thanks to the modern day medicines and equiptment they are able to save so many babies and then they go on to lead normal healthy lives, thats just so special!!!
The thing that turned me away from being a NICs nurse was the other side, the ones that dont make it. I cant imagine how sad it must be to lose a baby, and i didnt think i'd have the strength to cope. Some days i still wish i went along and studied it anyway because the positives outweigh the negatives.

Anyway, that was all, just cant wait for it to start!!!
Xx Jess!

Hey jess there is always a downside in any job, but that feeling that you help someone would be great.
I saw that add tonight and said to matt that he would have to type it for me because it's on a thrusday night. There is heaps of great shows starting in feb.
