THURSDAY 5 MAY 2022
Mother's Day is on this Sunday, and is an important day to celebrate the mothers and special women in our lives.
Having a baby born premature or sick can be an emotional rollercoaster and as your baby remains in hospital for weeks or months, it is common for parents to feel a range of complex emotions.
At different times parents may experience a combination of powerful feelings, such as fear, guilt, anxiety, isolation, sadness, anger, confusion, and disappointment. These are all natural responses to what is a very emotional and stressful time in your life. It is normal to grieve the loss of your dream of a normal pregnancy and all the experiences you were anticipating.
Babies can spend weeks or months in the NICU or Special Care Nursery and spending special occasions in hospital, rather than at home together, can be difficult for the entire family.
It is normal for parents to feel a sense of loss for what ‘should have been’.
For mothers who have their baby remain in hospital on Mother’s Day, it can be a confusing and overwhelming time. Miracle Babies aims to highlight and celebrate the exceptional journey of these mothers, their strength, resilience, and unconditional love for their baby as they continue to fight.
As we celebrate all new mothers, we also recognise the difficult journey of those mothers who have sadly lost their baby.
Each year, Miracle Babies Foundation provides Mother’s Day gifts to mothers in the NICU or SCN and this year, we thank our newest Corporate Partner and Australia new Pregnancy Multivitamin brand, Natalis, for their wonderful support by sponsoring our Mother’s Day gifts in 2022.
We hope that all Miracle Mums across Australia have a special Mother’s Day.
