Charity information

ADAPT Prembabies Ltd

ADAPT Prembabies support parents and families of premature and poorly babies needing specialist neonatal care at the Leicester Hospitals. There is no disputing the fact that the babies get the best possible clinical care but for the parents its one of the most emotional, traumatic times of their lives not knowing from day to day, hour to hour whether their new baby will survive this is where ADAPT steps in to help the parents through the good and bad days

Founded 1995

  • Mission statement

    Having a premature or poorly baby can happen to anyone. And because everything happens so quickly and usually unexpectedly, it can leave parents feeling very vulnerable. For many mums in this situation, their world has been turned upside down and they live not only day by day but in many cases hour by hour.

    ADAPT was set up by parents who experienced this after having their son Harry who needed intensive specialist neonatal care for nine months before being allowed home.

    ADAPT supports parents on the neonatal units in Leicestershire and when they go home for as long as is necessary. They also give telephone support to anyone who wishes to speak to someone who really does understand what is going on.
