Story

Every year, over 11,000 babies are born at Heartlands Hospital and Good Hope Hospital. Over 1,000 of those babies will be born too poorly or too soon and need the support of the Neonatal Unit.

The Neonatal Unit at Heartlands Hospital treats babies who are born as early as 23 weeks of gestation and can weigh as little as one pound. These babies will be born before their vital organs have developed such as their brain, lungs and even skin and in these cases, babies from across the region will be treated at Heartlands Hospital Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.

Heartlands Hospital Charity has launched a fundraising appeal to bring seven state-of-the-art incubators to the hospital's Neonatal Unit, to help staff provide the best possible care for the hospital's most tiny patients. These incubators will not only make it easier for staff to treat babies in a more comfortable way, they will also provide life saving therapeutic hypothermia which helps to reduce the likelihood of brain injury to premature babies. Currently, babies who need this type of treatment may have to be transferred to another hospital, causing more distress to families.

These incubators really will make a life saving difference to the babies treated on the Neonatal Unit. Please donate and help us to provide the best care for our smallest patients.

Thank you
