Colourful Beginnings (CB) was founded on the 17th of November, 2016 by Ola Adegbenro. After experiencing two premature births and spending extended time in various Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) and specialist hospital, she realised that there was very little support for families with premature babies. The medical teams helped, but could only go as far as their line of duty permitted.


Colourful Beginnings entire purpose is to bring love, hope and support to families of premature and sick babies in NICU and beyond, as we know the journey does not end after discharge from NICU. 

From experience, we found that preemie parents (for obvious reasons) rarely have the opportunity to adequately prepare for the arrival of their baby. This means certain things/moments of importance that create beautiful, lasting memories are missed, this has led us to put together NICU care packages to families, just to help with those precious moments. 

Our care packages are free, thanks to our sponsors. Our Mini Care Package is available throughout the United Kingdom to everyone with a baby in the NICU, this is on a request basis. Our Christmas Care Packages will be delivered to families at Queens Hospital Romford. 

We solely rely on donations to continue to support these families and would appreciate your help/support in helping us reach more families. There are various ways you can help make this possible.
