Our aim is to provide support to neonatal families through the stress and anxiety of their journey which extends not only from the time they are in the neonatal unit but to the years which follow.

We are proud to announce a brand new Playgroup with Developmental Support group for those in the Dunedin Region! We’ve teamed up with the School of Physiotheraphy, and along with the help of University of Otago and Pacific Trust Otage, we’re now able to provide assistance to more families on a neonatal journey.

This new developmental group is FREE and open to all families and preschool children and their caregivers and will provide a very valuable service for parents to get crucial free developmental assistance and advice for their children.

This Developmental Group will enable early social interaction which benefits the babies and aids in development, whilst giving the parents some, well deserved, time to reduce anxiety from the stress of having a premature or high-risk baby.

This group is designed to be a safe space where parents and babies can come to share their journey and have some interaction that is controlled and safe.
