Virtual Support for NICU Parents
Find support from wherever you are at any stage of your journey through Hand to Hold’s virtual support – which includes virtual support groups, mobile app, podcasts, private Facebook groups and our peer mentor program. All support is provided at no cost to the parents.
Virtual support groups allow NICU parents to access support from a mobile device or a laptop at no cost to the parent. Whether you are at the hospital, your home, or sitting in your parked car, we welcome you to join us where you are. 98% of parents who have attended Hand to Hold Virtual Support groups would recommend it to a friend.
Our groups are designed to bring NICU parents who are going through similar journeys together. All groups are led by our trained Family Support Specialists staff team members, each of who has had a NICU experience of their own. Camera on or camera off, we welcome parents in the way they are most comfortable. English and Spanish offerings.

All Zoom meetings will lock 15 minutes after start time, to secure the group to only those registered.
Hand to Hold is using Zoom, a third party vendor, to host these virtual support groups. Zoom is a cloud platform for video and audio conferencing with functionality across mobile devices, desktops and telephones. Hand to Hold is enabling all security features to ensure privacy and will not be recording any part of these confidential groups. It is our responsibility to inform you that any virtual support is not as secure as having in-person interactions. Any breach on Zoom’s behalf is out of Hand to Hold’s control.
By registering, you acknowledge you have been informed of the risks of communicating virtually and you agree to hold Hand to Hold harmless from any disruptions or breach during your participation.
