L’il Aussie Prems Foundation provides support and services to families of premature and sick newborns online and in the community, raises awareness of premature birth, provides equipment to Australian NICU/SCN’s and awards selfless volunteers who make a difference each year.
We are a charity registered with the ACNC and solely run by volunteers. For 10 years, our website and community have helped to connect parents together who have travelled a similar path whilst encouraging families to share their personal and unique journey through our website. No matter where families are located geographically, our website and support services are accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
In Australia, over 26,000 babies are born prematurely each year and we encourage you to help assist us in expanding our important work. You may have given birth prematurely or know someone who has been touched by such a heartbreaking journey. For anyone who has experienced this roller-coaster ride, understands how frightening, and at times, isolating it can feel when your baby is born too soon, not only whilst they are in hospital but for sometimes years after discharge. This is why our family focused community offers the lifeline that many families seek, from the early days in a hospital to the many years afterwards.
Please visit our committee page to see who we are.

L’il Aussie Prems is my “mothers group”. When I came home with the boys I was alone , isolated and scared. I stumbled across L’il Aussie Prems. I have found that the mums all helped me feel welcome & normal. I was no longer isolated as a new mum. It is also the one place where milestones mean so much, even the small milestones. I can get excited about little things and not feel silly sharing them with you guys.Jules, I thank you from the bottom of my heart for creating a forum that reaches out & connects so many. I am proud to be a community member.
