No one imagines their baby will spend time in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Today, 1 in 7 babies will begin their life journey in the NICU, leaving parents longing for support and at an exponentially higher risk for postpartum depression, anxiety, and PTSD. A child with a depressed parent is four times more likely to develop depression themself before adulthood.
Having a baby in the NICU is life-changing, but NICU families don't have to do it alone.
Together, we can reach the vision where no NICU family feels alone on their journey. Your donation today will help Hand to Hold continue to offer all services free to NICU families and to provide the support they need before, during, and after a NICU stay.
Can NICU families count on you today?
