The Australian National Premmie Foundation along with international premature baby support organisations from around the world such as BLISS in the UK, March of Dimes in the USA, Little Big Souls – Africa and The European Foundation for the care of newborn infants (EFCNI) in Europe will be celebrating the prematurity awareness month together. As part of the celebrations the National Premmie Foundation will be holding “National Premmie Week”.
The focus for the week is Kangaroo Care. Kangaroo Care played such an important role in the journey of our premature babies. Who could ever forget that first touch of skin on skin and holding your baby for the first time. Feeling the beat of your newborns heart. Kangaroo Care has proven to be an effective and important step in helping our babies in NICU & Special Care. The NPF is working with it’s member groups to raise awareness of Kangaroo Care during this important week of celebrations.
