Supporting sick and premature babies at St George’s
The Neonatal Unit (NNU) at St George’s Hospital cares for over 600 new-born babies each year (up to 39 at any one time) in the intensive, high dependency and special care nurseries at the hospital, which is based in Tooting, South West London.
Many of the babies we care for have simply been born prematurely. Some mothers have only just reached 24 weeks of pregnancy (40 weeks is generally considered normal). However, with the right care, these babies can grow up to be healthy, happy children.
The NNU will be holding its annual memorial service on 2nd November 2014 at 3pm
Parents on the unit are being encouraged to come along to a fortnightly meeting where they can chat to other parents and share their concerns informally with nnu staff.
