Our stories

Tax Appeal 2019

What's in a touch? A precious moment in time ...

With your support, a special piece of equipment, called a 'Giraffe warmer' and its supporting shuttle can be purchased, that will allow mum to touch and hold her baby even when urgent medical intervention is required.

It's a mobile resuscitation table which allows clinicians to take the technology of neonatal critical care straight to the baby, without taking her away from her precious newborn.

You can help mum to reach out and touch her baby.

You can help mum to feel her baby’s skin.

You can help mum to emotionally connect with the new life that she has just given birth to.

To touch a newborn, to hold them, to feel their beating heart is part of the natural rhythm of life.

Please donate today.
