Baby Bundles & Care Packages

More than 6,000 babies are born at King Edward Memorial Hospital each year. Many newborns arrive in an emergency and some without the essential babywear and blankets they need.

The Baby Bundles program exists to support WA families who need a helping hand during their newborns first few weeks of life.

Each Baby Bundle costs only $25. This cost covers materials while our team of volunteers do the rest, giving their time and talents in knitting and sewing the beautiful babywear and blankets.

The experience for new mothers and women undergoing cancer treatments can often be a lonely, isolating and scary one.

Many women who are patients at King Edward Memorial Hospital come from regional and very remote areas. Some can stay for weeks or months at a time.

The WIRF Women’s Care Packages provide a variety of items to help these women at a time of real need. Each Care Package costs only $95 and makes a big difference in hard times. Please help us provide more support to these women through our Care Packages.


The package includes:

- Bag                      - Conditioner                   - Shampoo                 - Shower gel
- Hair Brush            - Toothbrush                     - Toothpaste              - Hand cream
- Lip Balm              - Notepad                        - Pen                           - Sanitary Pads
- Toiletry Bag         - Underwear                    - Thongs                      - Socks

The Friends of WIRF program supports the women and babies of WA through practical help, immediate support and priority research.

Whilst helping the women and babies you will also receive your own ‘benefits’ through a number of ‘members only’ items, opportunities and acknowledgements.

Inaugural ‘Friend of WIRF’ Joanne Beedie said her own experience as a preterm mum at King Eddies made the decision to join an easy one.

“WIRF and KEMH perform a fantastic service for so many WA mothers and babies especially those of us who give birth too early,” Joanne said.
