Welcome from Pauline Woods


Welcome to our charity website Born Too Soon, we have worked hard to 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.

The charity was set up to support the Kingston Hospital Neonatal Unit. One of our team is always on hand to offer information and support. We have a volunteer group who generously hand make knitted cardigans, bonnets and blanket which we donate to parents.

One of our team will take digital photograph of babies as they are admitted to the unit and given to the parents.

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.
