NICU Now Podcast


Having a baby is life-changing. Having a baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is life-altering. But parents do not have to do it alone. Whether their baby is premature, has special needs, or they are grieving a loss, Hand to Hold provides whole-family support to get through this challenging time.

Hand to Hold’s NICU Now Audio Support Series was produced for NICU parents just like you. Each episode is designed to help you understand and process your emotions, fears and questions related to your child’s NICU journey.

Using your smart phone, computer or tablet, tune in at your baby’s bedside, while you commute from home to the hospital, while pumping and enjoying kangaroo care time with your precious baby.

Listen to Kelli Kelley’s introduction below, where she talks about her experience with the preterm births of her son Jackson, a micro preemie, and her daughter Lauren, a late-term preemie, and what drove her to start the NICU Now Audio Support Series. Episodes 1 through 15 are now available on iTunes and Stitcher.
