Our neo natal support

Baby Kai went home after a month in intensive care

Rainbow Trust Children’s Charity works with the whole family. We focus on supporting the baby’s siblings, who are often very confused and upset, and unable to visit for a variety of reasons. We also provide a transition service for parents whose babies do recover sufficiently to go home and offer a continued service at home.

“Rainbow Trust allowed me to see my baby more than once a week.”

Parents eagerly look forward to bringing their new-born baby home, so it can be extremely disorienting when they are admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. Parents can experience loss of expectation and normality and young siblings cannot often visit the Neonatal Unit.

Thank you for supporting this vital part of our work, caring for families with a seriously ill child.
