Connecting Preemie Parents with Preemie Parents

Our Preemie Parent Mentor Program focuses on providing resources and peer support to parents during and after their child’s NICU journey. We have a team of trained parent (and grandparent) volunteers, all of whom have experienced their own NICU challenges and can identify with the emotional and physical challenges that many parents face as they navigate the NICU.

Through our partnership with Parent to Parent USA, our program has the resources and ability to provide gentle support and encouragement. Every NICU journey is unique, but please know that you are not alone. Mentors are available by phone or email and are matched with parents based on similar experience.

If you have an interest in having one of our mentors contact you, please complete the following form.

  • Please select all areas of interest.
  • Please view our current Preemie Parent Mentors' profiles to learn more about their experiences and how they provide support to fellow preemie parents.

  • Please include any questions or comments you may have about the program, as well as any specific details about the support you are seeking so that we can provide the best possible match.

Graham’s Foundation has joined with Parent to Parent USA as a Parent to Parent USAcommunity partner. We follow their researched and endorsed practices for parent support. For more information about Parent to Parent, check out their website at p2pusa.org.

Supporting Preemie Parents in Difficult Times

As we work together through these challenging times, you may have questions about how Graham’s Foundation is supporting our preemie parent community. Fortunately, because our support programs have always been delivered virtually, we are equipped to deliver all of our programs today, tomorrow, and into the future to continue to meet the psychosocial needs of parents.

Our Care Packages offer helpful tips for self-care and navigating the NICU and going home (our supplies have been in stock since before the COVID-19 outbreak), our MyPreemie app provides critical preemie-related information and helps parents journal their NICU experience, and our three dozen trained mentors are available to lend an ear and offer words of advice and encouragement.

In such a difficult time, it is more important than ever that we are here for the most vulnerable members of our community and Graham’s Foundation is ready. We are grateful to our volunteers and the individuals and industry partners who make generous donations that enable us to develop and deliver our support programs.

In Gratitude,

Nicholas Hall, Founder
