November is International Premature Awareness Month

TinyLife joins the international call to support premature babies worldwide during International Premature Awareness Month.

During the month of November, TinyLife will be highlighting the impact of having a premature baby in the family and the need to support families coping in this difficult and complex situation.

Everyday in Northern Ireland 5 babies are born too soon; these babies often weigh as little as 1lb and many have complex needs.  In response to this, the charity is calling for the general public to mark the month of November by wearing a purple TinyLife wristband which conveys the important message 'our babies need extra help'.

Wristbands costing £1 are available from branches of Russells Cellars and Russells Shop 4 You stores, or the TinyLife offices at Carryduff.
