Smoothing the Transition Home from the NICU
Please join us in continuing to make these services and supports available.
We know that parents experience significant stress from their baby’s NICU stay and that by providing them with education, essential services, supports, and supplies they need not only in the NICU but especially once they are home, they are more likely to have the knowledge, skills, and emotional health needed to support their baby’s development and long term well-being.
Your donation will provide essential services and supplies for families through our Family Support Grant Program for:
♥ Infant cribs so they have a safe environment in which to sleep thus reducing infant mortality
♥ In-home lactation consultation so that mothers can achieve their breastfeeding goals
♥ Respite care to support family emotional health and decrease maternal stress
♥ Other supports and equipment for health, development and safety needs
