send a note of hope
Every year 4 million babies are born. This is an exciting and challenging time, but can also be scary when everything doesn’t go as planned, and even more so during this uncertain time in our country. Please show your support sending a note of hope. This could include:
- A note to a mom or dad to be or to a family with a baby currently in the NICU. Sharing your advice, experience and words of encouragement.
- A note to healthcare providers, nurses, and staff who are on the frontlines making sure that moms and babies are receiving the best possible care.
