“Hand to Hold was just what I needed and I’m grateful to have found the podcasts and community during my family’s crisis while my son was in the NICU. My hospital provided no support like this so I’m thankful to find it elsewhere, when it is so desperately needed for families everywhere experiencing a child in the NICU.
