Scarlett Rose Slack was born in Norwich Hospital on 26th April 2013. She should have been born on August 6th, making her more than 15 weeks early. For a while things were very scary and frightening for her parents, and very unpleasant for her (all those tubes and drugs).

The Staff at NICU looked after her with huge dedication and attention, and her parents were very brave. 

Scarlett was very angry and very determined. Now, Almost a year later, Scarlett is a feisty and charming young lady, deeply in love with her brother Oscar, and giving her parents the run around big time.  

Here are 36 snaps (a film) to document Scarlett’s first year.
