mother and baby

Hand to Hold® is a national nonprofit 501(c)(3) that provides personalized emotional support, educational resources and community before, during and after a NICU stay.


When babies need the specialized medical attention of a NICU, it is emotionally traumatic to the parent and disruptive to traditional parent-baby bonding. Hand to Hold® provides support to parents at no cost to families and all support is designed around the emotional, physical and social needs of the NICU parent.
