Helping premature babies and NICU parents one stitch at a time

Helping premature babies and NICU parents one stitch at a time

Having a premature baby born more than 4 weeks early is serious. In the United States, 1 out of every 9 infants is born prematurely. Preterm deliveries often cause intense feelings of regret and sadness for the mother. Afraid and unsure of the future, mothers often become depressed and isolate themselves from family and friends.

The Precious Preemie Project is here to help. We hand-knit hats and blankets for premature babies. Our hats are ‘warm hugs’ for babies when they need it most. We also want parents to know that they are not alone. During a time when they may feel like no one else cares, we are here to show them that we care.
