Christmas at the Wells

To say that the Wells are a little bit excited about Christmas may be just a small understatement… in fact it might be more accurate to say that they are full-blown Christmas fans!  When two people with a mutual love for Christmas get together it follows that their two separate Christmas decoration collections get together as well . . .

Weta Workshop lunch to raise funds

The Neonatal Trust is extremely proud and honoured to have Richard and Tania Taylor as our Patrons. They are fantastic supporters of The Neonatal Trust – very generously giving their time to promote awareness and assist with fundraising activities. We are incredibly grateful for their support. As part of 'Neonatal November' they are helping us fundraise with a lunch in the Weta Workshop boardroom . . .   

Neonatal Secret Santa 2018

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 . . . 

Baking for Babies in action

Our thanks goes to everyone who got involved in 'Neonatal November'.  Check out some images of the great efforts!

A Christchurch night out for Neonatal

On January 10 2018, my sister in law Shannon had a routine midwife appointment which luckily my brother Daniel was home for due to his work being rained off. At this appointment the midwife raised serious concerns for Shannons wellbeing and the possibility she was suffering from preeclampsia. Shannon was rushed to hospital . . .

  • The Senseathon will be a fun, themed event run by Baby Sensory.  Parents and their babies/toddlers will . . .    

Neonatal November 2018

In 2017 we launched 'Neonatal November'.  One of the key drivers for this was to have a wider period of time to raise awarness of neonatal journeys.  In addition, we were conscious that there are many 'non-premature' neonatal journeys each year (ie the full-term babies with health issues and/or complications) and we wanted to widen beyond World Prematurity Day on November 17th.  

Jason's unexpected beginning

Every parent hopes for a smooth entrance into this world for their little ones and while most get that dream, I'm so glad we have such a wonderful unit filled with amazing people to give help when our little ones need it.

Harrison's love for water helps overcome challenges

Harrison and his dad David, go swimming every Wednesday and Harrison loves to splish and splash and dunk under the water.  Water Babies have been awesome and it's been really great for his confidence.   We really feel like his strength and co-ordination have come a long way since beginning these classes.
