Today and everyday around 94 babies are welcomed into the world in Western Australia. 84 of them will join their parents and families at home in the next few days, 2 of them were born before 32 weeks gestation and are in for the fight of their life, 6 of them were born between 32 weeks and 36 weeks, a further 2 will have been born full term but sick, a path their parents no doubt thought they would not be travelling.
We are proud to say that we are WA's premier charity for high-risk pregnancy and babies born sick or premature. We are 100% volunteer run and our programs seek to create a deeper connection within the community, improving the health and wellbeing of others. Programs include:
Bedrest Care Packages
Neonatal Unit Care Packages
Special Occasion Gifts
Peer to Peer Support
Advocacy + more
This past year we have been able to expand our programs to reach even more West Australian families facing the challenges of high-risk pregnancy, the Neonatal Unit and beyond. In not only Perth but also in regional WA. That’s all thanks to the overwhelming support we receive from people just like you.
We would like to invite you ALL to join us in raising awareness throughout November as part of 'Neonatal November'. We seek to raise awareness and connection within the community for ALL babies admitted to neonatal units, regardless of cause.
Our key event for Neonatal November will be our Family Fun Day on World Prematurity Day at Bardon Park, Maylands on Sunday, November 17. Further details will be released soon.
More information on how you can get involved in ‘Neonatal November’ coming soon!
