IncuBabies is a charity which has been set up to fundraise for The Wirral Women's and Children's Neonatal Unit located in Arrowe Park Hospital. All donations are gratefully received.
WHY WE NEED YOUR HELP
The Neonatal Unit at Wirral Women and Children’s Hospital provides life-saving care to around 350 babies every year who have been born premature or sick in Wirral, Merseyside, Cheshire and North Wales.
It is one of only two level 3 (the highest possible level) intensive care units in the whole of Merseyside and Cheshire and the only unit in the area to provide both level 3 adult and neonatal intensive care on the same site. This allows very sick mothers who have had poorly babies to be cared for in the same hospital. The next nearest hospital to provide that combined service is Newcastle. WE CANNOT LOSE THIS UNIT!
Level 3 means that they are one of the highest level neonatal units who are qualified to provide specialised care for extremely sick or premature babies from around 24 weeks of pregnancy and they are on our doorstep. Babies born as early as 23 weeks have been able to survive thanks to the outstanding care provided by their team.
