Support Premature Babies

Not being able to take your beautiful newborn twins home must be one of the hardest things to deal with.

Lachlan and Ollie

This is exactly what Sarah, mother of Lachlan and Ollie, had to experience when she gave birth to her twin boys.

Born prematurely, Ollie underwent Intestinal Malrotation bowel surgery. Intestinal Malrotation is a condition in which there is a blockage or a twist in the digestive tract, preventing the passing of food.

Twin brother Lachlan was admitted to PMH to check for similar conditions.

Not only can hospital visits be exhausting and emotionally stressful, but having to visit every day impacts the lives of the family immensely.

Dealing with twins and also an older child Ava, aged 2 years old, Lachlan and Ollie’s parents were grateful for the wonderfully supportive nurses in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. 

"The daily visits to PMH to visit Lachlan and Ollie, never knowing when we would be able to take them home for good was emotionally exhausting and stressful. Even though it was hard, the nurses were wonderfully supportive," said Sarah.

Children like Lachlan and Ollie are cared for at the hospital every day.

Without your support, these children wouldn't have access to the very best expert medical care and specialist equipment needed to increase their chances of survival.
