Bliss advent calendar day 18

Mum and baby

Welcome to day 18 of the Bliss Advent Calendar 2015. We will open a new window each day revealing stories and videos relating to special care babies and the work that Bliss does. Each day is kindly sponsored by a corporate partner, to help raise even more towards improving the outcomes for every baby born premature or sick in the UK.

We would love you to share this on your social networks using #Blissadvent.

We’re here for you

Did you know Bliss produces a magazine for the families of premature and sick babies?

For almost ten years Little Bliss has been available for families in neonatal units across the UK. Packed with real life stories and advice from parents and health professionals, Little Bliss is here to show families you are not alone.

Little Bliss is free of charge to all families, neonatal units and all Bliss supporters – this includes active fundraisers, campaigners, volunteers and donors. You can now also sign up to receive Little Bliss every time it comes out by emailing

“I read the Little Bliss in the nursing room in the NICU while expressing. I found the articles helpful and comforting. I'm not someone who would go on a forum and discuss my situation, I am quite a private person, but I found reading other people’s stories comforting in that although this horrible experience had happened I wasn't the only one. It helped me deal with the troubles that we had and made them a little easier.”

Little Bliss is just one of our publications. If you need information about your baby’s condition, advice on going home on oxygen, information in other languages, breastfeeding, weaning or skin-to-skin guides you can order them free from the Bliss shop

We are able to provide these publications free thanks to generous donors, please consider giving to our Christmas appeal today.
