My experience has been nowhere near that of majority of posters in this forum, but my oldest two both spent their first three days in scn.

I will always be grateful that the facility was there and for the support of the lovely nurses.

Thank you to the girls in the SCN at the Wesley Hospital in Brisbane!  We spent weeks and weeks in there after both DS and DD.

They taught me how to look after my first baby, as I had barely held a baby before.

You girls ROCK!!!

Thank you, RPA SCN. And thank you, SCH NICU (especially Carly and Sue). You made an overwhelming time in our lives as calm and collected as could possibly be.

I cannot leave out the nurses of the HDU at C1 South, SCH. You ladies have become extended family and we are so incredibly thankful for you all. I have no idea where we would be without you. We love you all!

Thank you to the staff at South Eastern Private SCN (which unfortunately has now been shut down). Compared to others 17 days is nothing but to us it was an eternity. I hope that your amazing talents are being used somewhere else.

The nurses at RHW at Randwick cared for my son for 13.5 weeks. After almost 4yrs I still remember many of their names, and there are a few that will always hold a special place in my heart for their care and concern for my little family- in particular one nurse who cried when we finally took our son home and remembered us when we brought him in to visit a year later.

We are very thankful for the SCN, NICU and PICU doctors and nurses at the Mater Mothers Hospital, Mater Children's Hospital and our local regional SCN and children's ward. All 3 of my kids have been in NICU/PICU/SCN and words are not enough to express our gratitude.

We are also eternally grateful to the Royal Flying Doctor Service and the onboard nurses and doctors who have escorted my kids as well. We've used them 3 times and owe them a debt we can't repay.

Thank you to SCN at the SAN who looked after my dd for 5 weeks and are currently looking after ds.

Thank you NICU at Monash for a week, then SCN Frankston for 3 weeks for DS and SCN at Jessie Mc for a week for our DD. We will never forgot you - especially the NICU team who resuscitated our DS at birth. We can never thank you enough.

Thank you to the Nurses at the Ashford SCN for looking after DS2 for 50 days.

I second the thank you for the chats and the laughs. They always knew when you needed a little bit of a cheering up.

I would also like to thank the student nurses that worked in SCN, they were all lovely and treated the babies with such care and respect. They were also always good for a laugh (sometimes that was not their intention though smile1.gif )
