Latest batch of SCBU Parent Bags delivered!

We were delighted to donate the latest batch of our SCBU Parent Bags to the unit at West Cumberland Hospital recently…

The items included in the bags are:

 TeamEvie water bottle

The staff will continually tell mum to drink plenty of water while she is expressing milk, so we thought having a bottle on hand would help!

A Jomanda Sheep (thank you to Jomanda for their support!)

A beautiful cuddly lamb, perfect for being held by tiny fingers, and a fitting animal due to Evie’s best cuddly friend being a lamb!

A pair of premature baby socks (thanks to Babyprem for their support!)

One thing a parent preparing for their child’s birth will not be ready for if their child is born early is how tiny their feet are! We have included a couple of pairs of tiny socks so the babies can have lovely toasty feet!

 TeamEvie notebook

We know from our experience how handy having a pen and paper available is when you are in hospital with your child. Writing endless lists and writing down what you want to ask the doctor…hopefully having the notepad will reduce a little of the stress…

An Adult Colouring Book and Felt Tip Pens

Parents who have a child in SCBU spend hours sat beside their incubator or cot, and it is a very worrying time. Providing these resources to help distract and calm parents has been advised by Bliss and we are proud to now include them in our Parent Bags!

We are really proud to continue our support of families on the unit and hope that they continue to make the time in hospital easier for parents and their babies.
