More than 7000 babies are born in the Jessops Hospital every year. The hospital supports families through all stages of pregnancy, from conception to care after birth. This includes caring for critically ill and premature babies in one of the largest and most specialist, Neonatal Intensive Care Units in the country.
Babies being treated on the Unit require constant 24 hour care, sometimes for weeks or even months. Each day can be a struggle and your support can help these families, during what can be one of the most stressful times of their lives.

The Charity has recently turned four flats into homes for families so they can be close to their babies being cared for on the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Jessops hospital.
The flats will require ongoing maintenance and items will need to be replaced when they become worn out or broken. If you'd like to ensure that the flats remain a comfortable and welcoming ‘home from home’ for families you can make a donation to this area.
Charity funds help families in so many ways, from providing small items such as tiny dummies and clothes for premature babies to overnight accommodation rooms and comfortable day rooms for families to stay in while their little one is being cared for.
“This was a really traumatic period in my life, I lost two full stone in weight. Rhys was our first child and I was all set to be a protective father, when suddenly he was torn away from me. I had to put all my trust in the medical staff and they were amazing. I am so grateful to everyone, not just for how they cared for my son, but also for the overwhelming support they provided to me and my wife” Matt.
