Sean achieves all his milestones thanks to swimming!

Meet our Little Hero award winner 1-year-old Seán Byrne from Dublin!

Little Hero Seán Byrne celebrated his first birthday on 21 March.  He was due on 2 May 2018 but ended up being born 6 weeks premature after his Mum Aine Higgins had a haemorrhage.  After a quick dash to hospital, Seán was delivered following an emergency Caesarean Section.  Aine said “I didn't see him for 24 hours or hold him for 48 hours as he needed help breathing but thankfully he recovered very well thanks to the staff and team in the Rotunda.

Aine said “Seán began Water Babies in St Michaels House lovely warm pool in September and we have loved it so much.  It has helped Seán in every way and once I say splish splash he knows it's Friday swimming time!  Swimming has improved all his tone and brought on his milestones as he was a few weeks early.”  

Well done Seán!
