The early arrival of Alexis and Skylar

Any parent who has had a baby (or babies in our case) in NICU knows that you are a premmie parent for life. Our MoDi twin girls were born at 30 weeks weighing 1300gms and 841gms . . .

Points for Purpose launches

The Neonatal Trust is privileged to be part of 'Points for Purpose' - a new initiative where people can turn their Fly Buys points into support.

A Fathers day pick me up

Fathers day is a special day for many.  For hundreds of families on Sunday 3rd September, their memories will be different to most . . .       There are over 360 incubators and cots in neonatal units across New Zealand. While the unit is the best place for the care of their baby (or babies, in the case of multiples) they would love to be home on Fathers day. We have organised a pick-me-up package to each and every family with a baby in a neonatal unit to brighten their day

Simplicity. KiwiSaver provider with a big heart

Amandas story

My story is not a recent one, in fact my daughter Amanda is now 30!

33 week triplets mean 5 under 5yo in the house

Sarah's early stages of pregnancy "were really good", but by 30 weeks life became hard. She was admitted to hospital at 31 weeks for bed rest and the triplets were born a fortnight later.

Woollen Wonders 2017

The efforts of the many volunteer knitters are greatly appreciated as we cannot provide our support packs, and other activity, without such wonderful support.  These fabulous people help to make a difficult start to life that little bit easier for families going through the stress and anxiety of a neonatal journey
