The Giving Tree

Commemorate the birth of your baby by purchasing a leaf on our Giving Tree

The Giving Tree represents generations of babies born at The Bays. It celebrates our history as a bush nursing hospital and our evolution into one of the finest maternity units in the country.  You can celebrate the birth of your baby by purchasing a leaf on our Giving Tree.  For a tax-deductible donation of $350 you can order a leaf with your baby’s name and date of birth recorded on it.

Your individual leaf plaque will be placed on the wall and form part of The Bays’ Giving Tree. Families with twins or two children can purchase a double leaf. Triple leaves are available for three child names.  Families who have celebrated multiple births with us may purchase a branch of the tree to accommodate all their names.

Our Giving Tree is a wonderful way to commemorate your baby’s birth, and by doing so, you can help future generations. All funds raised through the Giving Tree program will be used to purchase much needed equipment for The Bays Hospital Maternity Unit. Equipment needs include foetal monitors, neonatal humidicribs, phototherapy lights, breast pumps and cots.

“The Giving Tree is a beautiful way to commemorate the wonderful experience of welcoming our children into the world, whilst also giving something back to the hospital. I cannot speak highly enough of the maternity team – they feel like extended family. We were so appreciative of the kindness, respect, support and professionalism we received throughout this special time.”

The Giving Tree art installation is located in the main reception of The Bays Maternity Unit.
