This Christmastime, help us raise funds in support of the Toowoomba Hospital Neonatal Unit

Caring for premature, vulnerable, and sick newborn babies from across the Darling Downs region, Southwest Qld and Northern NSW, the Neonatal Unit provides life-saving treatment for up to 12 babies on the ward at any given time, and upwards of 60 babies a month.

Your generous donation will help us create a more functional, private, and calm space for parents to visit and care for their new bundles of joy. By creating private cubicles for each bay, parents will be able to have moments to themselves out of sight of staff and other visiting parents.

Through our Toowoomba Hospital Christmas Appeal, we’re aiming to raise $350,000 by Christmas Day to help make a vital difference in the lives of our future generations and bring peace of mind to parents whose babies are under the wonderful care of the Toowoomba Hospital Neonatal Unit.

Meet our Ambassadors

The Neighbour Family

After their struggle with fertility, Dannielle and Alex welcomed their identical twin daughters Ivy and Wren on the 14th of May 2022 at only 30 weeks and 5 days.

Despite the many challenges Dannielle and Alex faced on the path to parenthood, Dannielle considers herself lucky to have fallen pregnant on their first cycle of IVF treatment.

“Having Ivy and Wren has dramatically changed our lives. I can honestly say that I’ve always wanted to be a Mum and now that we’ve got them, I can’t even describe how happy it makes us.”  

Arriving early didn’t stop Ivy and Wren from thriving thanks to the critical support provided by the Toowoomba Hospital Neonatal Unit.

Spending almost 10 weeks in hospital, the twins received round-the-clock care from a dedicated team of nurses, doctors and medical professionals helping to give them the best possible start in life.

Now happy and flourishing at home, Ivy and Wren have their Mum and Dad wrapped around their tiny fingers.

New parents Dannielle and Alex said they wouldn’t have been able to do it without the encouragement and guidance of the Neonatal Unit.

“The staff at Toowoomba Hospital are absolutely amazing…we couldn’t have asked for a better team of people to help look after the girls.”
