Early therapy interventions with premature babies help calm these babies and reduce stress and overstimulation experienced in the NICUs. Therapy helps also with weight gain and mobility development. We are raising funds to fund supporting activities for families with a prematurely born baby.
Reaching our goal of R30 000 by October will help enable the delivery of support during premature awareness month in November.
R6 000 will go towards12 sessions with an occupational therapist that has specialist experience with premature babies and sensory development.
R3 600 for 6 sessions with a lactation consultant to support mothers struggling to express breastmilk for their premature baby.
R6 000 for 12 home visits from a NICU nurse to provide support at home for families with a premature baby.
R6 000 for 4 support packages filled with the day-to-day needs of a family with a child in NICU.
R5 000 for 5 sessions with a psychiatrist to support families struggling with NICU PTSD.
R4 400 for an educational morning session with a specialist on prematurity.
R2 400 for a survey of six months to gather data on experiences in NICUs.
