Taking one Tiny Step at a time.
Our principal focus with every “Precious Bundle” is to be certain it is designed uniquely for each family. Our “Bundles” are created to accommodate their current needs.
NICU ‘Precious Bundles’ – These Bundles contain essential items for the family’s immediate use. Bundles are designed to fulfill some of the family’s basic needs, allowing them more time to focus on their little one(s).
Going Home ‘Precious Bundles’ – These Bundles are crucial for families so they feel prepared and ready for their little one when they come home from the NICU.
Sibling ‘Precious Bundles’ – Oftentimes families have other children anticipating the home arrival of their new little brother and/or sister. Age appropriate activities and toys are included in the Sibling ‘Precious Bundles’ to comfort and entertain them during this time.
In Memory ‘Precious Bundles’ – Parents and families are well acquainted with Hope, Strength, Spirit and Miracles but unfortunately some are also familiar with loss. They recognize that babies born too early are tremendously fragile and though their thoughts, healing energy, prayers and even modern medicine are amazingly powerful, they are sometimes just not enough to prevent some parents and families from having to say good-bye extremely too soon. Our In Memory ‘Precious Bundle’ provides information for the healing process and also includes an inscribed memento of choice to honor their baby’s memory.
Hospital Support & Education
We work directly with hospital administration and NICU staff to promote activities during a preemie's NICU stay. We will work with the mother/family to support pumping and breastfeeding efforts during hospitalization and after coming home. We also provide local connections for daycare, support groups and other organizations to support the transition home.
Our involvement goes well beyond the NICU. We partner with other non profit organizations to provide additional assistance for those with multiple needs. Families with babies that have medical or physical limitations can be connected with organizations to provide developmental support and therapy. We can also provide information for state and federal programs that may be available to the family during this difficult time.
