Father's Day 2017

Thanks to the support of our community we were able to distribute 210 gifts across 20 neonatal units state wide for Father's Day.  We know from the feedback we have received over the past 4 years that these special occasion gifts really go make a difference to a parents connection with their baby in the neonatal unit.

We designed cards especially for our neonate Dads so they can treasure their baby's tiny footprints created with love by their neonatal nurses. We also included a small gift to let them know that they are not alone, and the Tiny Sparks WA community is here to support them and their family.

We designed cards especially for our neonate Dads so they can treasure their baby's tiny footprints created with love by their neonatal nurses. We also included a small token present to let them know that they are not alone, and the Tiny Sparks WA community is here to support them and their family.

Dad's Winter 2015 Sundowner

Dad's are often responsible for steering the ship when it comes to navigating the family's high-risk pregnancy and/or neonatal unit journey. They are also often the forgotten when it comes to peer support. We love this video made by The Telegraph cartoonist Bob, who captures the essence of being a neonatal Dad. Click the image below to take you to the video.

Come down and have a beer and a chat with other dads who have been through, or are currently going through, this unique and often challenging experience.  Bring a friend. Dads who would also like to support Tiny Sparks WA are very welcome.

When - Wednesday 22nd July 2015 from 5.30pm
Where - Varnish on King, 75 King Street (basement), Perth
Hosts - Look for Mark and Daniel who will be wearing their Tiny Sparks WA caps.
Cost - Pay your own way (cash bar)

 

Update: Registrations are now closed.

Happy Father's Day 2014!

Today we celebrate Father's Day and recognise all those Dad's who are currently watching their baby in NICU or SCN, those Dad's who only have memories of their baby, those Dad's who provide and care for their families, those Dad's who get up early for their children's sport, those Dad's that get a phone call from their 'big babies' who have grown up. Happy Father's Day!!!

A small gift will be waiting for Dad's at NICU's and SCN's at King Edward Memorial Hospital, Princess Margaret Hospital 6B, St John of God Subiaco and Rockingham Hospital. We hope that this gift lets them know that we and all of our community are thinking of them in what is an extremely difficult time.
