Hands Up For Miracle Babies

When I was asked to be an ambassador for the Miracle Babies Foundation a few years ago I was both honoured and proud. 

Miracle Babies Foundation is Australia’s leading organisation supporting premature and sick newborns, their families and the hospitals that care for them.

Miracle Month of May is the organisation's national awareness campaign that highlights the struggles faced by over 45,000 Australian babies and their families each year.

Prematurity is the number one single cause of death in children.
Those who survive can face lifelong issues, challenges and disabilities including cerebral palsy, health issues, behavioural disorders, failure to thrive and difficulties at school and long term stress for the family.
Miracle Babies cares for these families from pregnancy till the children are 6 years of age and then beyond.
It is the only provider of care and support specific to these families and the only organisation working with neonatal health professionals on education, training and research which has international recognition.
Miracle May includes the following initiatives. Your support can make such a huge impact.
