Jane's Fundraiser

Little Felix was born last October in The NMH, and mum Jane wanted to give something back to show her appreciation to assist other families in the future. In January she completed a 10k challenge in her local park and raised an amazing €2,556 for the NMH Foundation!

After Felix was born, he was rushed to the neonatal intensive care unit with persistent pulmonary hypertension of the newborn. Mum wanted say a special thank you to NMH midwife Becky, who very quickly realised that something was wrong with Felix that morning. Felix was moved to the NICU and after 2 ½ weeks of care in the unit, little Felix was ready to go home.

Mum Jane says:
“I think we were overwhelmed by the kindness of all the team. The midwives did everything possible to facilitate breastfeeding. We were particularly happy when we got to hold him.”

A big thank you to mum, Jane, for sharing her story with us and raising funds for the NMH Foundation!
