Riding the Covid-19 rollercoaster with neonatal families

  • Moving developmental playgroups from being in person onto Zoom, so any neonatal family across Aotearoa could dial in to spend time with their Occupational Therapist and other families
  • Securing priority delivery codes from Countdown for online shopping for all neonatal families
  • Creating a ‘Parent to Parent’ support line so any family in need of a listening ear could call The Trust
  • Working with suppliers to get their breastpump sales sent direct from their warehouses to Mums in units or at home as The Neonatal Trust had no access to postal services from home
  • Creating recordings of mindfulness and post-partum yoga videos that were shared through the Trust’s social media channels
  • Increasing the frequency of the Trust’s newsletter to weekly, keeping the families in the units up-to-date with support, often including items such as good news stories or crosswords to help pass the time of day.
  • $10 can provide a support pack to go out to a family in need
  • $20 can provide a winter warmer pack for a baby
  • $50 can provide supermarket vouchers to support a neonatal family
  • Create your own Good Registry for a special event and ask friends and family to donate to a charity you choose (such as The Neonatal Trust).
  • Give Good Gift Cards instead of traditional gifts, to show people you are thinking about them, and enable them to donate to charities they care about.
