What NICU Professionals Are Saying

“The work Hand to Hold has done with NICU families has been life changing for families and our NICU staff. Hand to Hold is the perfect combination of skilled professionals who have a true understanding of the NICU journey from first hand experience. I do not believe there is a better organization than Hand to Hold for supporting these families through the most difficult and traumatic time of their life.”
— Rhonda Reed, BSN, RNC-NIC, Director of NICU and Neonatal Transport, St. David’s Medical Center

“With my patients, and in my personal life, I have experienced some of the deep sadness and loss that can accompany preterm birth or other birth complications. Hand to Hold will be such an important tool in assisting families in those vulnerable situations.”

— Dr. Felicia Nash, Preemie Mother & Obstetrician/Gynecologist, Women Partners in Health
