We are a not-for-profit organisation supporting and empowering families of premature and sick babies.
When a baby is admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) life as it was for the family ends. Priorities change and what was once important is sidelined. Daily tasks are put on hold while life revolves around the NICU schedule – cares, cuddles and car parks.
The best medicine you can give a premature baby is time with its mum and dad. Helping Little Hands provides practical support for families of the NICU so their time can be spent with their baby – giving kangaroo care, expressing, breastfeeding and spending time by the bedside.
By taking away the stress of necessary, everyday tasks we are making a positive impact to the experience of NICU families.
