JOIN OUR MISSION
What is Mission for Miracles?
Mission for Miracles is our Regular Giving Program that provides ongoing support to premature and sick newborns 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?
The NurtureProgram is Australia's only comprehensive support program.
Our comprehensive NurtureProgram consists of;
NurtureLine: 24-hour family support line with access to a trained support team.
NurtureTime: Facilitated by qualified Miracle Babies Foundation volunteers, these support sessions operate within Australian NICU’s and online providing vital, comforting emotional support.
NurtureGroup: Out-of-hospital play and support groups for families and carers who have experienced the birth of a premature or sick newborn. Health professionals such as speech pathologists, physiotherapists, family support nurses, social workers and occupational therapists may also attend NurtureGroups to support families.
NurtureProgram Resources: We supply a range of resources for families with a premature or sick baby, to positively change the experience for families during what can be an emotional and traumatic time. Our resources are developed by parents themselves who have had a premature or sick baby and work toward supporting, educating and empowering families from admission, discharge, bereavement and the transition to home.
Our services and resources are FREE for families to access.
