Filmmaker Karan Johar became a proud father to twins Yash and Roohi. This news left people in shock but Karan’s wonderful welcome note for his kids won our hearts.
The twins were born premature, as per doctors’ recommendation, they were kept in NICU. Now, Karan has again written a letter talking about the time Yash and Roohi were born and he was worried about their health. In his emotional post, Karan has talked about his initial days as a father. He has also thanked the medical team who has been taking care of his children.
My children were born two months premature and worryingly underweight. Like any person in this situation and on the brink of fatherhood, my heart sank. Knowing that there were complications with my babies birth owing to how soon it was, I was terrified. All I wanted to do was hold them and protect them but they needed to be in the NICU. It was painful to see how tiny they were…
He has also spread awareness about how proper care and a right team of doctors can save premature babies.
Thankfully, I had a great support system. Roohi and Yash were in the hands of the most competent and patient doctors. Something that had its roots in an ordeal soon turned into an experience that I will never forget.
As someone with a voice, I want to reach out. Millions of preemies are born every year…. bu babies are resilient. With the right kind of care, they stand just as good a chance of survival as anyone else. Having a premature baby is something that you don’t expect to happen to you. The whole experience has ignited a passion in me to help premature babies to get the best chance they can… to help those in anguish who want the best chance of survival for their early born babies. If your baby is a preemie, don’t be discouraged.
