Queensland Reds donate onesies to Mater’s littlest patients

Fathers with babies in Mater Mothers’ Neonatal Critical Care Unit (NCCU) received an early Father’s Day surprise with Queensland Reds players Angus Blyth and Mac Grealy making a special visit to donate dozens of tiny member onesies. 
 
Blyth and Grealy personally presented the pint-sized onesies to the Mater Mothers’ team, new parents, and babies in NCCU. 
 
During their visit, Blyth and Grealy met with parents Brendan and Anna who recently welcomed the arrival of their son, baby Reuben. 
 
Grealy a fullback, said it was “pretty grounding” to hear what parents of premature babies were going through in the NCCU.
 
 “To see the work that goes on here, it’s been pretty eye opening for me and Angus,” Grealy, 20, said.  
 
Blyth, 24, said it was really rewarding for rugby players to visit the Neonatal Unit.
 
“It’s been awesome meeting the families and their babies and hearing their stories,” he said.
 
“We wish all the new dads a very special day this Father’s Day with their newborns.”   
 
More than 2,000 seriously ill and premature babies are cared for at Mater Mothers’ Neonatal Critical Care Unit (NCCU) every year.
