By setting up a regular gift today you can help make an ongoing difference to the lives of babies and their families at the hospital.

  • Learn about advances in maternal and neonatal care.
  • Receive updates from consultants, researchers and midwives and hear how you can help them tackle the challenges ahead for mothers and babies.

Every donation counts

€10 a month  – Can help staff provide small items or equipment to mums, babies and visitors on each ward. A special blanket, a comfy cushion or chair, breast pumps for NICU mums, small comforts for patients whether they stay for a few days, weeks, or even months.

€15 a month – Can be used to provide soft supports to our bereaved parents, to purchase Moses baskets, blankets, candles, or keepsakes for families who are going through the toughest of times. We need to raise €10,000 euro to make sure mums, dads and babies have soft supports like these for 365 days in 2021.

€21 a month* – Can help provide answers and treatments for women with conditions like pre-eclampsia, cancer in pregnancy, diabetes, or placental conditions that can threaten the life and long term health of mother and baby. We need to raise €150,000 to replace equipment all over the hospital in 2021.

*Did you know? If you donate €250 or more in total in any one year, we can increase the donation value by almost 45% by reclaiming the tax paid at no extra cost to you.
