Special Care Baby First Charity of It's Kind in Scotland Wednesday 16 April 2008 PDF Print A new Scottish Charity, SpecialCareBaby has emerged to help premature babies and those requiring specialist care and attention shortly after birth. Angela Brown, Trustee, herself suffered the need to travel over 60 miles from her own home when she went into suspected early labour with her twins at 31 weeks. Her local hospital could not accomodate both babies. This was the reason behind a campaign to raise £25,000 for her local hospital which has almost been achieved already in a period of 5 months! Now, on the verge of something truly amazing in Scotland, Special Care Baby has been formed. The Charity is already receiving support from the medical profession in Scotland, as well as interest from national charity BLISS - the premature baby charity, who do not currently have a major foothold in Scotland. "We are very keen to work with BLISS to help raise the profile and awareness of the plight of Scotland's Neonatal Care Units", said Angela Brown, continuing on she said "Premature and special care babies, require the most help and yet they are still not receiving the one to one care that many adults expect when they are ill. It is in part, for this reason that Special Care Baby was set up".
