NMH Foundation launches new NoxBoxi machine to help Premature babies

2 minutes


When Freddie Halpenny (pictured) arrived into the world on 21st August 2017, he weighed just 980g.

Today however, he is a thriving, healthy fourteen month old toddler weighing 25 pounds.

Together with his parents Eimear and Eoin, he visited the National Maternity Hospital recently to celebrate the publication of a special Parents’ Handbook, written by a team of NMH Authors and designed to support and guide parents through the worrying period while their baby is being cared for in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit – NICU.
WaterWipes supported the design and publication of the booklet.

On World Prematurity Day 2018 the NMH Foundation will be launching the new NoxBoxi, a machine which will help deliver oxygen to premature babies’ lungs. This machine has been purchased with funds raised by Freddie’ parents Eimear Halpenny and her partner Eoin Campbell who with their families and friends raised an astounding €47,780 for the NICU. Their son Freddie who was born prematurely will help to cut the ribbon on this very important piece of equipment for the NICU at the National Maternity Hospital.
