“Oscar was born crying – the most wonderful sound parents of a premature baby can hear.”
Not all pregnancies go to plan...
|While most babies born at the Women’s go home soon after birth, babies born sick or premature can spend many days, weeks and months in our hospital.|
The earlier a baby is born, the more critical the situation.
As one of Victoria’s largest and busiest maternity hospitals, our expertise is called upon for complicated pregnancies and premature births.
Last year, we cared for more than 1,400 premature and unwell babies and supported the parents through the challenging and often difficult and emotional journey.
|This is Oscar. Born at 26 weeks, he spent 167 days with us.|
|Every single day we save lives. And every single day we work to develop new and better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat conditions affecting women and their newborns.|
This Mother’s Day, please donate to the Women’s and help us continue our vital work to give women and their babies the best possible chance.
