Supporting sick and premature babies at St George’s
The neonatal unit St George’s Hospital cares for 600 babies each year. Many of the babies we care for have been born prematurely, with some mothers having only just reached 24 weeks of pregnancy (40 weeks is generally considered normal). Some babies require life saving surgery. We want these babies to grow up to be healthy, happy children with bright futures. Donations to our work at St George's help to achieve this.
Baby company, Budding Gifts, has teamed up with First Touch to donate 10% of the price of each Premature Baby Bouquet to our charity when sold to our supporters (£33 inc postage) using a special online code.
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.
