Support & Resources

Having a premature or a sick baby in an newborn intensive care unit (NICU) or a special care baby unit (SCBU) is an extremely stressful and distressing time for parents – it’s a journey that no one plans to be on.
The Neonatal Trust exists to provide, and coordinate, support to these families during this time, the transition home, and onwards. This is achieved through face to face and online support, care packages, assistance to families in need, as well as providing post-discharge playgroups facilitated by Occupational Therapists and Physiotherapists.                                               
Our website hosts a wealth of information-rich resources, an online shop for the essentials,  as well as stories of hope from other neonatal families We have worked with families for over 30 years and are continuously adding to our services and our reach across New Zealand to make a difficult start to life that little bit easier.
