The Parents of Preemies association is an organization founded on a “pay it forward” mentality, where parents who receive packages, support, or encouragement are asked to do the same for others achieving life -long connections, which provide positivity and guidance to parents of preemies.
On Nov 18th this volunteer–based association will be hosting an event at the Ottawa Hospital in honor of World Prematurity Day which will include an online auction Nov 10 -16th to raise funds for parents of preemies.
Please, login on Nov 10th -16th and bid on local items in this online auction, knowing you are supporting this amazing community network for local parents of premature children. Winners announced on Nov 17th
“Having a new baby is overwhelming in the best circumstances, let alone when your baby comes 10 weeks early as was the case with my daughter. I found the Parents of Preemies group just before her birth, and was immediately comforted knowing there was a group of local parents who had already been down the same road. It has been a wonderful resource for advice and support, inspiration for the bad days and celebration for the good ones. It was also so nice to receive the care package during our stay in the NICU, where something as simple as a hat or outfit that actually fits your baby goes a long way in lifting spirits. I truly cannot say enough good things about the POP Ottawa group and the valuable resource it is providing to parents in the Ottawa area.” Sarah
