Peer Support for NICU Families
We believe in the power of peer support. While we are grateful to all the clinicians and caregivers who helped our families, we recognize that being able to connect with someone who has a similar lived experience is incredibly important.
Since our inception we have collaborated with experienced parents, health care providers and hospitals, all sharing a common goal of training individuals to provide peer support and run parent groups in Canada’s hospitals and communities.
Get support from other parents of premature children! Join our support network today!
Led by Perinatal Mental Health Specialist.
