Help Us Support Moms For World Prematurity Month
Through our work, we’ve seen the power of storytelling. We’re asking you, our Embrace community, to share your stories of birthing and parenting premature infants. Your story could be just what a fellow mom who is sitting in the NICU, willing her baby to grow, needs.
November is World Prematurity Month. Imagine emerging from pregnancy and the fog of birth only to be faced with the myriad of medical jargon and life-or-death decisions you must make quickly to keep your baby alive. Imagine watching their tiny form learning to breathe and survive before your very eyes, and not being able to cradle them, or assure them it will be okay. Too many moms of babies born prematurely – 15 million across the world each year – know what this feels like. It can be difficult to know how to best support these moms through this, especially when the care of their babies is largely out of their hands. Through our work, we’ve seen the power of a few kind words to show a mother she’s seen and supported. In proud partnership with Preemie Connect, we’re asking you, our Embrace community, to join our letter-writing campaign for mothers who are waiting for the premature babies to come home.
