POP Ottawa’s impact on our community.What the families are saying:

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

Seeing photos of other preemies that are now beautiful children running and playing gives me hope that my little ones will be fine. It’s so scary being in the NICU, when your baby is hooked up to machines you’ve never really seen before, with wires and tubes coming off of them. Hearing others talk about how their babies are doing so well now is wonderful. This group have given me a place to ask my questions to others who have been in my shoes. Advice and experiences shared are genuine and people really do care to help us in our tough times. Receiving a package for my little ones was so nice. It felt good knowing others cared about us and about our little babies. Just connecting with someone who has been there before, even if only for a short minute gave me strength I needed to get though the days that felt so long.” Amanda
