Join us in spreading awareness, supporting families, and acknowledging the incredible dedication of the healthcare professionals in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Together, we can create a brighter and more hopeful future for the little warriors who inspire us every day. Let's make Neonatal Intensive Care Awareness Month a time of unity, compassion, and understanding as we strive to make a meaningful impact in the lives of those affected by the NICU experience.
A Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness campaign designed to raise awareness of all types of loss from conception through a child’s first two years of life, teach healthy fertility through womb health education, provide support to families who suffer these losses and provide support for memory programs so they won’t close due to inability to afford supplies.
Matties Memory was set up to help families who have experienced the loss of a child during pregnancy and infancy. We donate memory bags, blankets, hats, teddy bears, burial gowns, and bereavement support items because 1 in 4 women experience the loss of a child during pregnancy and infancy. And those are the numbers we know about. Many women experiencing early term miscarriages do not go to the hospital, This number does not also account for those women who have repeated losses.
Our most important goal is to help guide families through the terrifying rollercoaster of their NICU journey, and beyond into recovery. We firmly believe that each and every preemie family can grow to meet these challenges with the love and encouragement of other preemie parents and neonatal professionals.
