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.

Wanted: Personal stories about premature babies

We have helped a lot of babies, and we can help so many more. But we need your help. We need personal stories.

When parents and grandparents share their stories about the emotions they experienced while having a child/grandchild in the NICU, it makes people really understand how much these hats really mean.

I know what it means, and some of our supporters know what it means, but a lot of people have no idea. With personal stories, we can reach out and let people know just how important our work is. Let people know how a hand-made hat by a stranger can add happiness and a sense of hope.

Of course, your name and other identifying information will stay anonymous.

Please remember, this is for the babies.

A million thanks!!
