Sunday 10th May 2015 is Mother's Day in Australia. A day we recognise all our wonderful Mums and acknowledge all things that make them special.
We give special thoughts to those Mums who may be experiencing their first Mother's Day sitting by their babies crib in a neonatal unit, those Mums who are torn between their children at home and their sick baby in a neonatal intensive care unit or special care unit, those Mums who will never get to hold their babies in their arms.
This year, Tiny Sparks WA has provided gifts to mothers with babies in all the major neonatal units across Western Australia including King Edward Memorial Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital Unit, Fiona Stanley Hospital, St John of God Subiaco and Joondalup Hospital.
This gift includes a special card so that the neonatal nurses can create a footprint for the Mums, and a cute cookie cutter shaped into babies feet.
We hope Mums currently visiting their babies in neonatal units know that we are thinking them on this special day.
