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.  

Simulators enable enhanced training in Waikato NICU

'Premature Anne' training simulator manikins were donated to Waikato Hospital’s Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) to provide realistic training experiences for medical professionals who work with these tiny babies. 

Activity across New Zealand in September

Behind the scenes, Fathers Day packs

On Sunday 2nd September, we delivered hundreds of 'Pick-me-up' packs to neonatal dads on Father's Day.  The delivery of these packs provides a good case study into many of our support activities - many of which benefit from the philosophy 'Many hands make light work'.  

Father's Day 2018

Father's day is a special day for many.  For hundreds of families on Sunday 2nd 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.

Neonatal journeys to benefit from international collaboration

Supporting neonatal-related medical research is one the three core objectives of The Neonatal Trust.  Through advances in understanding and clinical care, we can help thousands of future babies - in NZ and around the world.
