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

When You Want More of Their Story



Our bloggers are generous with their stories, opening up their lives to share about their NICU experiences in hopes that it will help other parents going through similar situations. Sometimes, we get comments and messages from our readers asking about our bloggers. These inquiries are asking for more. More of the story, more questions they want answered, and more connection with a particular blogger. And we love this! So we wanted to make sure our readers knew that many of our bloggers have blogs of their own you can follow!

You can meet all our bloggers here and those that have their own blogs will have the links to them included in their bios, but we figured we’d share a few gems with you here, too.

Andrea has written many great pieces for the PreemieBabies101 blog, and has some great gems on her blog as well. Check out these on Pumping in the NICU and Kangaroo Care in the NICU – both things all NICU parents will encounter.

You might remember Heather’s post, Dear NICU Nurse, that was picked up by the Huffington Post! She writes some great things on her blog, too, like this one titled The Cost, which touches on the unexpected costs that come with being a NICU parent.

Kara, one of our newest bloggers, has experience with loss as well as prematurity, and discusses the healing aspects that go along with both in her blog post, NICU Healing. We love what her perspective brings to the table!

Another one of our awesome bloggers, Laura, has a unique story. She raises a child with hearing issues in a family of musically talented parents. She shares both about being proud and about being in denial in her blog articles, Why I Am A Proud Preemie Mom and Denial.

Stacey is another blogger that has experienced a loss in the NICU, and many of her articles for our blog have dealt with this topic. One of our recent favorites on her blog, Letting Go, deals with just that – and it’s worth a read!

We hope you’ll take some time to visit some of these posts and our other bloggers’ sites as well.
