It is critically important to ensure newborn babies have close contact with parents after birth, especially for those born too small (at low birthweight) or too soon (preterm). This is why:
Each year, Monash Health’s Casey Newborn provides care to more than 750 unwell babies. We always aim to ensure parents can remain close. However, sometimes there are simply too many admissions, and this can become difficult.
Monash Health’s Casey Newborn would like to have a pull-out bed at every single cot side so parents can stay with their baby as long as they want to.
The chairs are compact enough to fit next the bay’s cot side against the wall. When required as a bed they have an easy trundle out mechanism.
Each chair costs $4,695.
Each gift, large or small will go a long way in helping us to keep parents and baby together this festive season.
