A Note From Pauline Woods

Welcome to our Born Too Soon web site. We hope that it helps you answer some of the many questions which you may have.

Born Too Soon was set up in 1985 by parents such as myself together with health professionals. The Charity was started as we recognised a need for not only support for parents but also for a need to purchase specialist equipment for the Neonatal Unit. Having had four children who benefited from the services provided by the unit, I felt it was time to give something back.

We are based at Kingston Hospital Neonatal Unit. I am on the unit on a daily basis to offer information and support. Parents are given a handknitted cardigan and bonnet, blanket an information booklet about the unit and given a tour of the facilities. A digital photograph is taken of babies admitted to the unit and given to the parents.

You can also find out useful information on the parents section of South West London Neonatal website.

Our aim is to help and support families at one of the most difficult times in their lives. Please have a look and website. We welcome constructive suggestions.
