Hand to Hold's Official Blog: Written by Parents for Parents

Send a Mother’s Day Card in Support of NICU Families


Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and Hand to Hold is kicking off its first official Mother’s Day campaign. Beginning today and lasting through April 30th, when you make a donation of $25 or more, Hand to Hold will send a recipient of your choice a Mother’s Day card with your personalized message. Click here to donate.

On my first Mother’s Day, our 31-week twin girls had been home for about a week. Life was still quite a whirlwind. Despite it being a beautiful day, we stayed in, ordered lunch from our favorite New York style deli, and then I took a much-needed nap. I’d only been parenting for a few days without the help of the nurses and medical staff. It was exhausting, but still wonderful.

Mother’s Day is a very emotional day for NICU parents, parents of preemies, and those who have suffered a loss. As this special day draws closer, we’d love for you to consider honoring a NICU mom or grandmother in your life by making a donation to Hand to Hold. Your gift will ensure families have a Hand to Hold before, during and after the NICU through our comprehensive in-hospital resources and volunteer peer mentoring program.

Happy Mother’s Day to you and yours!
