JOIN OUR MISSION
Join our Regular Giving Program to provide support to more miracles and their families.
Having a baby born premature or sick can be life-changing, it affects the entire family. Parents who have had a premature or sick newborn are at increased risk of developing post-natal depression and many babies can face lifelong challenges including disabilities, developmental delays and behavioural challenges. Connecting with others who have also been through a similar experience helps these families cope with the emotional and challenging journey.
Today, only around 1 in 3 families impacted have access to this vital support. With no regular government funding for our programs, we need your help.
Join our Mission to achieve "better, healthier outcomes for more families challenged by prematurity or sickness."
By donating weekly, fortnightly or monthly, you can make a big difference to families for years to come.
Where does the money go?
Miracle Babies Foundation is Australia’s leading not-for-profit organisation providing much needed support for premature and sick newborns, their families and the hospitals that care for them.
It costs $143 to provide support to just one family through their hospital journey, and $715 to continue this support during the first year after leaving the hospital with our NurtureProgram. This includes costs for support teams, supplies, operational costs and resources for these families and hospitals. Our services and resources are FREE for families to access.
