September is NICU Awareness Month

September is NICU awareness month and a NICU stay affects so many families. Do you know and love someone who’s life started in the NICU?

Shared from Neonatal Intensive Care Awareness Month: Every day, NICU parents show incredible strength in facing the challenges of having a newborn in intensive care. However, it's crucial to acknowledge that roughly 40-50% of NICU parents experience clinically significant levels of depression, anxiety, and trauma.

You are not alone in this journey, and support is available. Remember that reaching out for help is a sign of strength, and there are resources and communities ready to support you.

For valuable resources and assistance, please visit: National Perinatal Association - Mental Health Support.

Today and every day we are deeply moved by the strength of NICU babies and the resilience of their families.
