L’il Aussie Prems Foundation Inc. (LAPF) is Australia’s largest online support community and forum for families of prematurely born children and sick newborns. They are a voluntary not-for-profit organisation set up to provide online support, raise awareness, bring parents together who have travelled a similar path whilst encouraging families to share their personal and unique journey through our website. No matter where families are located geographically, our website and support services are assessable 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The Foundation’s website was initially established in 2007 by Julia Toivonen, who gave birth to her first son at 27 weeks gestation. The website has many interactive features available from premmie birth announcements, messages to hospitals, inspirational premmie information, then & now photos, premmies of the moment, birth stories & galleries & angel baby memorials.
The forum and website continue to offer a lifeline to families.
L’il Aussie Prems holds a national event called “Green for Prems” each year on Facebook. The event is held on the first Wednesday in April each year. Families love celebrating the day and take many photos.
