Development groups

The Neonatal Trust (Auckland) Developmental Playgroup is for babies who have been through a NICU or SCBU unit.  It is appropriate for babies from when they go home from the unit, until they are cruising furniture.

If your baby is well, you may come when you feel ready

At these sessions, we:

  • provide developmentally appropriate toys and play equipment in a baby friendly setting;
  • act as a social support group for parents.   Parents are able to meet and chat with others who are going through similar experiences to themselves.  Stories, information, and helpful tips are shared over a relaxing coffee
  • provide the support of a Developmental Therapist who offers support and advice, and is happy to answer any developmental questions that parents may have relating to their baby’s development

This is a FREE service for families who have been in a NICU or SCBU unit
