Peer to Peer Support

Post NICU Events

NICU Families tend to have an immediate connection with each other due to the intense shared experiences they have been through. Getting families together can allow families to connect with others that completely understand the fragile needs that caring for a NICU child can have. Project Preemie will host events throughout each year to promote this connection both with family events and parent nights out. For upcoming events, see link below.

Parent Connection

Having a child in the NICU can be a very frightening and isolating experience. We want you to know that you are not alone. We invite you to take a look at our Project Preemie Parent Blog written by a team of NICU Parents, all of whom have very different stories. Here you will find stories of challenge and struggle, but also hope, love and support. Our goal is to connect with as many families as possible to ensure they don't feel alone throughout their experience. Writing about your experience can be very therapeutic and can help others more than you may know.
