CEO and Co-Founder

Kylie Pussell co-founded Miracle Babies Foundation in 2005.

After suffering a miscarriage and losing twin babies at 16 weeks, Kylie gave birth to her daughter Madeline at 30 weeks and was diagnosed with Cervical Incompetence. Madeline was cared for in Liverpool Hospital’s NICU for 6 weeks.

Two years later, Kylie delivered twins at just 25 weeks. Both were resuscitated at birth and cared for by the NICU. Sadly Kylie’s son Marcus passed away due to complications from his extreme prematurity. Her daughter Scarlet required ventilation and surgery. Scarlet was cared for in the NICU at Liverpool and Westmead Children’s Hospital and was discharged home just before her due date, 4 months later.

Kylie, a qualified counsellor, has played an integral role in the expansion of the foundation’s program NurtureTime, the introduction of Miracle Babies Foundation to hospitals nationally and the development of national resources. She developed and implemented Miracle Babies Foundation’s successful volunteer program, designing National Volunteer Induction and Training with TAFE NSW. Kylie was selected in the inaugural The Growth Project in 2015.

Kylie delivers presentations and forums on the Foundation to community and corporate and shares her personal journey with her children. Kylie highlights the needs for parents and families in the NICU and the years ahead. Kylie leads support for our bereaved families and assists families and educational institutions in the learning, social and emotional challenges some of these miracle babies experience in the early years and school aged years.

Kylie is a Co-Investigator on the POD Study, POD 2 and member of the PSANZ Perinatal Palliative Care Special Interest Group.

She is CEO of the foundation and passionate in driving the expansion of services and resources across Australia for all families to be supported, educated and empowered.

Kylie’s son Liam was born at 38 weeks through planned c-section.
