Mission Statement

Our mission is to facilitate emotional, material and financial support for families of preterm babies before, during and after a hospital NICU stay and those who experienced a prenatal or perinatal loss or stillbirth. We also provide support for hospital NICU facilities to promote high quality care and improve services that address the entire families’ need for instrumental and emotional support.

Description

The organization was born out of love by three women on Valentine’s Day 2020 as a result of our family member’s prenatal and perinatal losses and the birth of one tiny mighty micropreemie who is thriving after 100 days in the NICU. We wished we had more information, resources, preparation and support so we decided to dedicate our time to bringing all of that to others. Our goals are to break the taboos around talking about pregnancy loss and the challenges and trauma faced in the NICU; to advocate for systemic change that improves maternal and child health, makes related mental health and, material and financial support available, reduces the percentage of poor pregnancy outcomes for women of color and grows emotional support programs for fathers who too often suffer in silence. We want to get others involved in taking tangible action steps to support these families, together we can improve high quality hospital NICU facilities, sponsor drives for needed 0-3T clothing, baby supplies, books and equipment, and raise funds to expand follow up care and services for all family members.
