Care packages

Our care packages are available as a free service for families with a child diagnosed with Congenital Diaphragmatic Hernia (CDH). To arrange for a care package to be sent to you, or a family member, please email hello@cdh.org.au

Care package for newly diagnosed parents contain:

 

  • A cooler bag to help mums transport breastmilk to and from hospital (or lunches!)
  • A snuggle toy for bubs (or even an older sibling who needs something to cuddle)
  • A face washer (to give baby their first bed bath)
  • CDHA-themed pregnancy milestone cards
  • A CDHA-themed birth certificate (blank, for the parents to fill in)
  • A pen (to take notes, write down those niggling questions, record events)

Care package for parents who have lost a child to CDH contain:

 

  • Either a Willow Tree figurine or a personalised candle.
  • We like to send this care package to parents 6–12 weeks after a baby passes, this is because we often find friends and family will rally around parents for the first few weeks and months. For parents dealing with bereavement, we think it’s important to send a gift at this later stage to say that they are not alone in their journey, and that their precious baby is still being remembered. For any parents who would like to receive this care package earlier or later, we are always happy to do this. Family or friends are also welcome to coordinate this care package too.
