Preemie parents know that NICU nurses are heroes. They are more than healthcare providers. As time passes they become confidants, friends, mentors, extended family members, and advisors. They laugh with us and they cry with us. They celebrate victories – no matter how large or small. They mourn with us – the loss of a baby or the loss of the hopes and dreams we have for our preemies. And NICU nurses provide a glimmer of hope on the days when it seems all hope is lost.
From now through January 27, 2017, we are joining Pampers in inviting parents, co-workers, family members and friends to nominate and share the story of an extraordinary NICU nurse who provides babies and their families with special touches of love – stories like the ones shared here. (You can nominate your preemie’s favorite nurses at www.pampers.com/thankyounurses)
