Would you like to meet parents of premature babies in your community? This Facebook Group of Strong Mamas was established by a local preemie parent. Join this Facebook group to participate in gatherings with local parents of premature babies in the Fairfield County, CT community. They have ladies’ lunches, casual dinners, playdates at parks, and much more! Members are encouraged to attend at least 4 in-person gatherings per year AND help schedule at least 2 gatherings per year.
Absolutely no advertising allowed on this group’s page.
The Tiny Miracles Foundation is now hosting Connection Groups at some of our partner hospitals. These groups provide parents with an opportunity to connect with one another and learn about important topics relevant to the preemie experience. These topics include: Connecting With Your Preemie’s NICU Team, How to Survive the NICU, Finding Resources for Your Preemie, and more. Light food and refreshments are available.
If you would like to learn more, please contact Elisabeth Schneider at firstname.lastname@example.org.
TTMF's Parent Support Network offers confidential one-on-one emotional support from trained volunteer mentors who are parents of preemies and these mentors are also available to speak with every week in Danbury, Stamford, Norwalk, and Bridgeport Hospitals. We try to match families with trained mentors who endured similar experience. Through TTMF you may develop an ongoing relationship with your mentor for frequent or occasional support, seek support as needed through our on-site mentors, or request support or guidance regarding a specific condition.
