Proceeds from the 2021 Festival of Trees will be directed towards Women’s Health & Birthing Centre to purchase a Biliblanket that allows newborns to be wrapped and held during treatment for jaundice. It will also purchase new technology in a Bilirubin Jaundice Meter that eliminates the need for heel pricks in newborns, as well as waiting for lab results. The meter can quickly and efficiently monitor bilirubin levels and potential for jaundice, similar to using a thermometer.
