Premature birth is the number one killer of newborns.
Over one million little angels around the world each year never come home.
Over 45,000 babies are admitted into neonatal intensive and special care units every year in Australia. This is over 14.5% of all babies born and translates to over 115 admissions every day. 1300 of these babies weigh under 1000grams – less than a bag of sugar.
