Magriet is a dr at a local hospital in the premature ward and asked if i would be interested in taking some images for them. I did not have to think twice -I LOVE documenting! I wish I could go in every day for a month or two to see these specific little babies grow and develop . It truly was an eye opener to see with what love and dedication these doctors and mothers help these tiny humans to grow gram for gram.

One of the methods they use to help these babies grow, “kangaroo care”: This is soooooo interesting – read more about it HERE. Some of these mothers has to stay with their babies in hospital for months, so they can grow up to 1.8kg, when they are finally big enough to go home. They are truly little fighters and this experience makes me want to see/experience / document more. And them of coarse share what i’ve seen. (:

Thanks to Magriet for getting written permission from all the parents of these babies to photograph them.
