The Full Circle support group began in February 2018 and was the first of its kind in the Cleveland area. Started by preemie parent Rochelle DeOliveira, Full Circle is a peer-led, community based support group for NICU parents. After her sons 97-day NICU stay, Rochelle felt compelled to create a safe space for parents to come together for support and connection that she could not find anywhere in the area. The group is free of charge, and open to all NICU parents, both past and present. Full Circle offers peer-to-peer support related to the psychosocial and emotional effects of the NICU experience, and focuses on the unique issues parents face related to transitioning home post-graduation and navigating life with former NICU babies. Parents are invited into a setting of support, hope, and connection.
