Neonatal Parent to Parent Partnership
The Neonatal Parent-to-Parent Partnership at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital connects parent volunteers who have previously had an infant in the NICU with parents who currently have a hospitalized infant in the unit. Because we understand that few things are as comforting to parents as support from someone who knows firsthand what they are going through with their child's illness, we are happy to help make these connections.
The Neonatal Parent-to-Parent Partnership is available upon request. Coordinators work to match families with similar situations. Support can continue once the baby is discharged from the NICU.
