17th November is World Prematurity Day

Medela Australia are proud supporters of the Life's Little Treasures Foundation.  A foundation created by some amazingly strong parents who although they had their own tribulations wanted to provide education, friendship, support and understanding to other parents of premature and sick children.

Each day in Australia 76 babies are born too soon. This Tuesday November 17th is World Prematurity Day. We are asking you to help us raise awareness of the impact of prematurity by sharing your little treasure's photos and memories with the tag  #76borntosoon
