Who we are:
Naitbabies are a patient organisation run by families who have a serious platelet 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 her baby’s platelet antigens and may result in death or lifelong disability/ies.
What we believe:
We believe that all babies have an equal right to life.
Naitbabies mission is to be a strong voice for parents, children and families who have been diagnosed with, or suspect that they might have the genetic disorder neonatal alloimmune thrombocytopenia.
Our objectives are:
