The NMH Foundation Parent Support Services Fund

The NMH Foundation are working closely with the Social Work Department to improve many Parent Support Services here in the National Maternity Hospital. We know that having a baby in intensive care is one of the most stressful things a parent will experience and in many cases this is compounded by the fact that many of our parents travel great distances and/or must spend weeks and months coming into our city centre location to be with their sick baby.

The NMH Foundation is now looking at ways to relieve some of this pressure by working with our medical social workers to support them in their efforts to source parking and accommodation.

We are delighted  to announce that because of the generosity of our donors we have been able to purchase 5 parking passes for our Holles Street Parents as part of an NMH Foundation initiative supporting Parent Services.

Continuing to work with the Social Work Department in 2018 the NMH Foundation gifted 130 Breast Pumps for NICU Mothers helping to alleviate a little of their stress at an incredibly difficult time. We will continue to develop this fund and collaborate with NMH Staff to improve our services throughout 2018.
