Connecting Preemie Parents with Preemie Parents

Our Preemie Parent Mentor Program focuses on providing resources and peer support to parents throughout their child’s prematurity journey. We have a team of trained parent (and grandparent) volunteers, each of whom has had their own experience with prematurity. Our mentors can help parents from the early days in the NICU to the transition home, and also, if they experience a loss.

Through our partnership with Parent to Parent USA, our program has the resources and ability to provide gentle support and encouragement. Every prematurity journey is unique, but please know that you are not alone. Mentors are available by video call, phone, text, or email. Parents are matched with mentors who have had a similar prematurity experience. 

Based on your needs, there are two ways to connect with a mentor:
