About Us

 

Who we are:

Naitbabies are a patient organisation run by families who have a serious genetic disorder called neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia – NAIT  (also known as FNAIT or FMAIT). This  may cause unborn or newborn babies to bleed into their brain (ICH) and/or other major organs due to the maternal immune response against baby’s blood platelet antigens and may result in death or lifelong disabilities.
