Helping parents through a rocky start

I went through NICU with my wee boy Reuben, who’s now five and just started school. At 24 weeks, I went into spontaneous labour — we still have no idea why. It was a big shock and very stressful once he was here, with critical matters of life and death. I knew nothing; I didn’t even know babies survived at that gestation. . .

2017 Neonatal Secret Santa

Christmas day is a day for families to get together, be together and make memories. For hundreds of families this Christmas, their memories will be different to most with their baby (or babies, in the case of multiples) in a neonatal unit. There are over 350 incubators and cots in neonatal units . . . 

Neonatal research in the news

Understanding the way in which premature or sick babies respond to treatment is absolutely critical. We need to make sure that each baby gets treatment that provides the maximum possible benefit to support the process of healing and recovery. Babies brains are incredibly vulnerable.

Healthy outcome for baby prompts neonatal fundraiser on World Prematurity Day

One of the hardest things about having a prem baby is not being able to give them a cuddle. When Greytown couple Helen and Alistair Haslett's baby Naomi was born eight weeks premature last September, Helen was not able to hold her until a few days after the birth and Alistair had to wait weeks. It was a tough for the whole family seeing Naomi so helpless.
Naomi Haslett was born two months premature over a year ago and now she is inspiring a Neonatal Trust fundraising campaign. . .

Introducing Neonatal November

For a number of years we've celebrated and supported World Prematurity Day (November 17).  However, we've been super conscious that there are many other neonatal journeys each year, ie the full-term babies with health issues and/or complications.  All babies needing an extra hand are cared for by the caring, patient and kind staff in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) and Special Care Baby Units (SCBUs).
