Through the care she received, Kimberley was able to carry her precious child to 30 weeks, when Noah abruptly came into the world via an emergency caesarean section. As the doctor lifted Noah into the world, Shaune remembers looking at his son in complete shock and could not believe how terribly small and fragile he looked. Like the majority of very preterm babies, Noah was so small you could hold him in the palms of your hands. Noah was not ready to be born into the world and was now fighting for his life.
Noah’s parents Kimberley and Shaune are forever grateful for the care Noah received from the doctors and nurses in Mater’s Neonatal Critical Care Unit (NCCU).
Thanks to generous people in the Mater community who have supported Mater's NCCU over many years, babies like Noah have had access to state of the art equipment and the results of medical research which have both contributed towards better health outcomes. Today, Noah is a happy healthy child, who is absolutely mad about cricket.
