About Isla’s Journey
Hi, I’m Ashley.
After 4 rounds of IVF I finally got pregnant and was expecting twins! At just 24 weeks I went into spontaneous labour and immediately assumed the worse.
After a 12 and a half hour labour with just gas and air our first born, Esme, was born sleeping weighing just 670g but still perfectly formed and beautiful. Our second daughter was born 50 minutes later. Isla was just 655g and just as beautiful and perfect as her sister.
From that day she has fought hard to show and teach us our purpose in life! To give back to others!
Thanks to Isla’s strength and courage we have dedicated our lives to helping those that helped us through our darkest days. I decided to create a secret group to update everyone daily with pictures and events of the day. We followed this through up until day 200 when, together with my husband, we created our page- Isla’s Journey- this not only documents her daily adventures and milestones but also our aspirations to help others.
2 years later as well as providing care packages to units across the country we also make personalised gifts that helps us raise our much needed funds to continue our work!
