LITTLE battlers were celebrated at Ayrshire Maternity Unit last week as the hospital marked World Prematurity Day.

Crosshouse Children’s Fund hosted the day which celebrated the bravery of Ayrshire’s tiniest babies and their families as well as the incredible teams who work tirelessly to give them the extra special care they deserve.

Families and brave babies joined staff for tea coffee and cake and a chat to share their incredible stories.
