DEVELOPMENTAL HEARTS FOR TINY SPARKS WA
Tiny Sparks WA is a not-for-profit organisation run by volunteers with the mission to improve the health and well being of Western Australian families enduring high-risk pregnancy, infants requiring neonatal unit care and associated childhood impacts.
Every year many families experience the highs and lows of sick full term babies, premature infants, loss and the ongoing developmental and medical needs of a child who begins their life in the neonatal unit.
The volunteers at Tiny Sparks WA work tirelessly to raise awareness and provide support and guidance. We would like to get involved and support this charity by sewing developmental hearts. These hearts are provided to families with infants who have been admitted into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit. The fabric heart is worn against the mother’s skin to absorb her scent. The heart is then placed with the baby so the mother is always with her child.
