Wrapping up Full Term NICU Babies Week

Wow… what a great week!

We want to thank everyone for making Full Term NICU Babies Week such a huge success! It would not have been possible if it were not for all of our loyal and supportive followers and especially for those who were willing to share their stories and insight. It is a great form of therapy to read other parents’ experiences and know we are not alone. We all have a common bond… a NICU experience.

Special thanks to everyone who contributed guest posts and birth stories. It is sometimes hard to talk about a traumatic experience but allowing other parents to read similar stories and know they are not alone is a huge help to so many.

We hope you all enjoyed the amazing things shared with you this week, as much as we have enjoyed collecting them for you! And remember… it doesn’t matter how early or how late your baby arrived, a NICU experience affects us all. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you for the continued support you all lend to each other!

Here’s a brief recap of everything we’ve shared with you this week here on the site and on Facebook:






Aimee Sprik About Aimee Sprik

Aimee Sprik (IL) is mother to Connor, born unexpectedly early at 26 weeks, in December 2008, due to an infection. Connor, with his parents, survived a complicated 120-day NICU stay, which changed their lives forever. Since bringing her son finally home, she's felt passionately about volunteering her time and resources to supporting fellow NICU parents, both at the hospital where Connor was born, and by co-founding Life after NICU, an online parent support forum now moderated by Hand to Hold. You can follow Aimee on her personal blog, Sprik Space, or send her an email.
