“The fragility of life is never so apparent as when caring for a preterm baby.”

“Research has led to great advancements in clinical care meaning most preterm babies now survive and thrive, but many live with ongoing issues from being born too soon.

“My team is committed to preventing preterm birth as well as ensuring that those born early get the best care so that all little babies have the healthy start to life they deserve.”

– Prof. Maria Makrides (Deputy Director and Theme Leader, SAHMRI Women and Kids)
