Welcome To It's From Elsie

'It's from Elsie' delivers new children's books to Neonatal Intensive Care and Special Care Unit's around Australia, for mums to read to their babies on days when they can't hold them. Donations help towards covering the cost of parking for families that are cared for by the Perinatal Loss Team at Mater Mothers' Brisbane. Our long-term goal is to establish Elsie’s House, a space for bereaved mums in their 4th trimester.

"If not with you, for you."

What we do

Support:

We support 19 Australian hospitals with new children's books. When you can't hold your baby, you can still read to them.

We support Precious Wings and the Forever Held Foundation with books for parents and siblings after the death of a baby as support and a special keepsake.

We support NICU families with Christmas and Mother's Day practical support packs.

We support NICU families with our 'sew-a-heart' project. Cuddle Hearts link mum and baby, when they can't be together.

Fund:

We fund parking for families that are cared for by the Perinatal Loss Team at Mater Mothers' Brisbane.

Elsie's Story

In August of 2022, at only 7 days old, Elsie Jules grew her angel wings.
From the pure joy of her birth, to absolute devastation of her death, Kate was determined to keep Elsie's memory alive.
And so became the start of "It's from Elsie".

Our mission

To relieve the distress and suffering of parents experiencing unexpected child loss as well as those requiring unexpected stays in the NICU.

Our long-term goal is to establish

Elsie’s House, a space for bereaved mums in their 4th trimester.
