Every year in the United States, nearly half a million babies are born too soon, with more than 8,400 of them right here in Washington. With your help, we work to improve the health of babies and support families if something does go wrong.
All Washington events.
Through programs and services in communities across Washington, we promote healthy pregnancies and babies, and work to prevent premature birth and birth defects. We educate moms and support families in need.
NICU Family Support
The hospital-based NICU Family Support® program provides information and comfort to families during the NICU hospitalization of their newborn, during the transition home, and in the event of a newborn death; contributes to NICU staff professional development; and promotes the philosophy of family-centered care in NICUs.
