Preemie Parents Talk About the NICU

In honor of Prematurity Awareness Month here in November, I joined up with the folks at Inspire.com (I moderate their Preemie Support Forum) to create the following report “Narratives from the NICU: Neonatal Intensive Care Units Through the Eyes of Parents.” Please pass it on! In addition to awareness about prematurity, we need to continue to foster an ongoing effort to support families who have already walked the halls of the NICU and are today either still there or at home and working through various struggles. These babies, these children and their families, need understanding and real support.

The report can be found here.

  1. My partner, Richie, and I have been together 17 years… we decided it was time to have a baby. We invited our surrogate to live with us through the pregnancy. Tallulah was born 100 days early weighing 2 pound. After heart, eye, hernia surgeries, she has just turned 2 years old. We are also in the entertainment industry. Our stories are very similar. Thanks for a great film!
