Support for Postpartum, Disability Parenting and NICU
Over the years, I have looked for support and have found several wonderful organizations that I know will be of help to other mothers like me. Here is my evolving list of resources:
- Eli Collins Foundation helps the parents and families of premature babies cope during such a difficult phase in their lives, stay encouraged, receive support from several resources, and keep the faith that even though they have endured such a challenge, life will continue and so will they.
- Glo Preemies GLO Preemies™ seeks to raise the voice of black families in the NICU and post-NICU in terms of creating racial and health equity through professional healthcare services, family educational initiatives, and family support up for African American families for a continuous 18 years.
- ICU Baby is on a mission to unite NICU families and provide them with financial, emotional and informational support so that families and babies can thrive together in the NICU
- Mended Little Hearts provides hope and support, creating awareness and being a strong voice for CHD families everywhere
