Every year more than 500,000 babies are born prematurely in the United States (18 million worldwide), many of whom that must spend weeks or months hospitalized in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) fighting for their lives. The NICU is especially trying for preemie parents, who are unable able to care for their newborn, feeling simultaneously overwhelmed, sad, angry, guilty, lonely and anxious about their child’s future.
Fortunately, leading NICUs and organizations like Ronald McDonald House Charities (RMHC) offer preemie families a semblance of respite, community and support during and after their time in the NICU. By gifting a copy of Go Preemies! to your favorite NICU or RMHC, you will help provide these families with encouraging and inspirational support for what their preemies can achieve despite the challenges of preterm birth!
Please select from the following list of 700 NICUs and 400 RMHCs to begin the gifting process:
