Give to Hand to Hold
You can make a difference in the lives of NICU families.
Approximately 500,000 babies are admitted to the NICU each year. NICU parents face their own long-lasting mental health challenges, including postpartum depression, anxiety and PTSD.
These challenges affect the entire family.
These struggles may:
Impact the parent’s ability to bond with their baby
Have devastating effects on the development of the baby
Affect the stability and well being of older siblings at home
Result in higher rates of divorce, child abuse and neglect.
You can help.
Your gift will help ensure families get the vital support they need in the months and years after leaving the NICU.
