Preemie Freebies – July 2023

You told us, we heard you! PreemieWorld is working on a free gifts program for families in the NICU, preemie or not. Each month we will highlight trending topics around our community.

While in the NICU in the midst of chaos, parents need a little something to remind them that they are surrounded by love and by families who get the journey. So many preemie parents who spent time in the NICU have found a way to pay it forward. One big support to parents is care packages in the NICU. Here is a list of organizations providing free products in adorable care boxes for parents in the NICU:
