Parents of Preemies Day


Parents of Preemies Day is coming up on May 4! I will do a proper post on my thoughts and feelings about being a proud preemie parent on the actual day, but for this post, I just wanted to throw awareness out there about what's going on and how you can be involved!

Are you a parent of a preemie? Graham's Foundation sponsors a wonderful day that is just for YOU! I have been blogging about this special day since it all began 2 years ago, and every year it has gotten bigger and better. 

Please support Parents of Preemies Day, a worldwide day of awareness produced by Graham's Foundation. Parents of Preemies Day recognizes the courage and commitment it takes to stay strong and resilient when premature birth turns a family's world upside down. Each year, 13 million babies are born prematurely across the globe and though medical breakthroughs continue to improve outcomes for preemies, experts are only now beginning to understand the intense psychological effects that premature birth has on moms and dads.

Here are just some of the ways you can celebrate Parents of Preemie's Day, whether you're a preemie parent or someone who cares about a family with a preemie:

    • Check http://parentsofpreemiesday.org/events.html to find out if there is an event happening in your area and if so, register. May 4th is going to be a great time!


    • Connect with other parents of preemies at the next #ParentsofPreemiesDay Twitter chat! Jump into the conversation using hashtag #ParentsofPreemiesDay to talk about how moms and dads can celebrate being parents of preemies.

    • Bloggers, visit the Parents of Preemies Day website and grab a badge for your sidebar – then create a Parents of Preemies Day post to tell the world why you're proud to be a preemie mom or dad. Email a link to your post to christa @ grahamsfoundation.org and we'll post it on the website!


If you have any questions, please let me know. I'd be happy to help you get in touch with someone from Graham's Foundation if you wanted to start your own event or have issues finding an event near you. A few days before the event, I'll be sharing my story of why I"m a proud preemie mom and what being a preemie parent means to me.
