online support, meetings, events
Through online support, meetings, and events, we connect past and present NICU families. This type of support is invaluable for current NICU families and provides healing support for past NICU families. Together we are raising awareness about prematurity, life in the NICU, babies born critically ill, and infant loss. The countless inspirational NICU stories families have shared with us, provide immense support to current families, letting them know they are not alone.

preemie prints sew & Craft
Through the Preemie Prints Sew & Craft division we are sharing hope with NICU families through the gifts of handmade items.
Preemie Prints donates & delivers our NICU positioning device
and our Keepsake NICU Giraffes to partner hospitals and NICU families. This is a way we are able to reach many families. Some of the other items we make & include when possible are hats, preemie outfits, baby blankets, burp clothes, and cuddles beds (for positioning in the NICU). Please volunteer to help us remotely or visit our Facebook page and click on the events tab

nicu and nicu graduate photography gift program
Through our network of volunteers, Preemie Prints gives NICU families no charge professional photography. We provide free photo sessions and the digital images to families with babies in the NICU or NICU graduates up to 1 year of age. This program was created to share hope! We want NICU families to know and remember how strong they are. Each day parents wakes up, return to the NICU, and sit by the side of their little fighters whispering loving words, cuddling, and taking care of them. Those difficult days in the hospital and early days at home are filled with powerful emotions. Photographing these special moments is a healing gift of love that parents treasure and share forever. This support program of no-charge NICU photography or NICU graduate photography is available to any baby/family who has spent time in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for any period of time with a preemie or baby born critically ill. Sessions can take place inside the NICU or after discharge up to 1 year of age. If you choose a NICU session, our volunteer photographers enter the hospital as your guest, much like a friend, chaplain, pastor, or other support volunteer would, not as a hospital vendor.
