My twins were born 11 weeks premature in 1980. Back then they were considered very early. The
staff at the NICU at Dartmouth encouraged early bonding. As they grew stronger we became involved in their care. bathing, feeding, I later went on to help start a support group for parents. Support I did not have. Bless all that take care of these babies.
Thank you for sharing your story and your support!
Former NICU nurse. Strongly believe in this cause. My son, now 28 years old was transferred to a neonatal unit 30 minutes away. That seemed too far. Moms and babies need each other!
Thank you for your support!
My daughter was born 5 weeks early after my appendix ruptured i could not imagine of i wouldve had to travel to little rock to see my baby for weeks.
Thank you for your support and sharing your story!
As the mom of a child who was born 12 weeks early, it is absolutely critical that these parents spend as much time as possible with these babies! It does make a difference - a difference to the infant and the parents!
Thank you so much for your support!!!
Everyone at Willow creek NICU is so amazing. My precious twins had TTTS kept in til 34 weeks because of the amazing MFS at Northwest and Dr Lin and Dr Eagle and their team of APNs and nurses helped my babies and us during such a hard time. I would have been a wreck if I couldn't have been there 24 hours a day! Please support this!
Thank you for your kind words and support!
This is the most important aspect to the health and safety of both the baby and family.
I agree! Thank you for your support!
God Bless You and this great work to help our families~Amen!
Thank you for you kind words and your support!
I've been here & I know just how important it is to be there. Its a very scary time. My little boy was 12 weeks early. It made such a difference being able to stay at the Ronald McDonald House to be able to be there for him. Thank you everyone for signing & forwarding this petition. The other parents & babies as well as myself appreciate it!
Staying with our son was the most important.....to be able to talk with him and hold his little hand to let him know we were there I know gave him comfort n strength.
It makes all the difference in the world! Thank you for your support!
My son was born premature and he was in the NICU it is an amazing place. Everyone is so nice and it makes you feel at ease. The things they do for the children is just amazing. I am thankful everyday for the one my son was in, he is happy and healthy and doing wonderfully. Please sign this, so that other families can benefit from it.
