“Sometimes the strength of motherhood is greater than natural laws.” — Barbara Kingsolver

This month we celebrate our fearless NICU moms around the world. Your strength is second to none!

International Bereaved Mother’s Day (May 2nd) Please keep the mothers who are mourning the death of a child in your thoughts. Reach out and let them know they are seen and loved.

Kangaroo Care Awareness Day (May 15th) If you’re a NICU mom, you are not thinking of a hairy hopping marsupial. You are smiling as you recall the experience of skin-to-skin bonding. Help us celebrate Kangaroo Care Awareness Day by tagging PreemieWorld on Instagram with photos of your kangaroo care pictures!

Use hashtag #kangaroocare2021 for a chance to win a special preemie prize!

From our PreemieWorld family to you, Happy Mother’s Day, Warrior Mamas
