The Neonatal Trust are proud to be supported by the team at Mediaworks Foundation and The Breeze during the Month of  Neonatal November. 

The campaign, Tiny Cuddles, will enable us to purchase much needed La-Z-Boy chairs for the Wellington and Lower Hutt neonatal units to enable precious Kangaroo Cuddles between parents and babies.   Full information and how to donate can be found here  

About Kangaroo Cuddles

Kangaroo cuddling (skin-to-skin cuddles) is great for both parents and their babies. Babies generally improve when they’re being held by their parents and multiple studies have proven that it has a number of benefits for parents and for babies including: 

  • Fewer breathing problems
  • Faster weight gain
  • Less energy-wasting fidgeting
  • A more constant body temperature

Plus, as parents spend many hours in these chairs, we want to make sure their neonatal journey is as comfortable as possible.

Our sincere thanks for your support!
