Activity across New Zealand in April

AUCKLAND

Mums Morning Tea 
Now EVERY Tuesday at 10.30am in the Mums room in NICU.  Come and along to chat with one of our Lactation Consultants and other NICU Mums as well as enjoy some home baking provided by one of our ex-NICU Mums.

Coffee Confidential 
Our coffee group with a ‘twist’.  This is a facilitated group run by  Lara Mulgrew (Psychotherapist) who has worked in Auckland NICU.  The purpose of the group is to get ex-NICU families to come out for a coffee and a chat, to talk through their NICU experience plus the transition of going home.  We held three really successful sessions at the end of last year and will continue again in 2019 on the following dates at the Parenting Place, Greenlane between 12.30-2pm: 26 April, 24 May and 21 June.

The Neonatal Trust Developmental Playgroup – we’re having a great year this year with record numbers at the group! 
Kathryn and Janet would love to see any ex-NICU/SCBU families and babies for our fortnightly playgroup at the Parenting Place, Great South Road from 10am til 11.30am.  There’s no need to stay for the whole time just come along when you can and stay for as long as you can!  This is a fantastic FREE service for babies who have been through a NICU or SCBU unit. It is appropriate for babies from when they go home from the unit, until they are cruising furniture. If your baby is well, you may come when you feel ready.  Janet Milne, who is an Occupational Therapist, is there to answer any questions you may have.  It’s a great opportunity to meet up with other families who have been through NICU/SCBU.
