You can stop a mother’s heartbreak at losing her unborn child

Your gift towards a new ultrasound machine will help prevent premature labour... you’ll help save babies’ lives!

Imagine you’re carrying a precious new life within you.

Then a routine check-up shows you’re in danger of early labour... before your baby is big enough to survive outside the womb. Your obstetrician wants to take a closer look... and put you on intensive monitoring.

But there’s only one ultrasound machine. And it’s already in constant use. Your baby’s life is at risk. How would you feel? What would you do?

My name is Dr Penny Sheehan and I’m the Director of Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Eastern Health. Today I’m asking for your support to help save babies right here in your local community.

Your gift will go towards an extra ultrasound machine to save lives in the womb! You’ll give these fragile new lives the best chance of survival... and help to stop a mother’s heartbreak at losing her baby.

I urgently need to raise $47,000 for this new ultrasound to be used in the preterm labour clinic at Box Hill Hospital. I helped set up this clinic specifically to help women at high risk of going into labour before the baby is big enough to be born safely.

I would love to expand this clinic. I know the demand is there. But I need immediate access to an ultrasound machine...

Thank you for your support,

Dr Penny Sheehan
Director of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Eastern Health
