Every year, 5,000 babies are born preterm in Ireland. About 900 of these preterm babies are born at less than 32 weeks gestation. Babies from around the country are transferred to The NMH each week because they need the very special care of our NICU team.

The NMH Foundation would like to invite you to flex your (fundraising) muscles through the month of June to help tiny babies arrive, survive and thrive. Pick your #challenge32, create your JustGiving page here and get in touch, We'll help you every step of the way. Some ideas for you here:
