EBF wants to give a BIG thank you to our Somerset Support Team for hosting another successful craft night as well as all of our supporters and NICU families who attended the event and worked hard to create these sweet NICU mementos for some of our local hospitals! We recognized very early on the need for follow up support after the NICU along with the fact that many of our families are not local and coming back for a support group after discharge can be difficult! This realization paired with the need for these bassinet memento cards to be created gave us an awesome opportunity to extend Early Bird Foundations reach further! One of our discharged mommas, Charissa Phelps, along with our secretary Farha, and other family members have taken charge of creating this space every other month allowing members of the community and discharged NICU families alike to come together and give back to the NICUs all while sharing their stories and supporting one another at the same time! The realization that this unique and difficult experience of the NICU can be used to help others can often be both empowering and healing for families! We are happy to help provide opportunities like these that allow our families to work with us to give back and create a supportive space in their own communities! #nicufamily#nicufamilysupport#craftsandsupport#nicucommunity#earlybirdfoundation#peersupportfornicufamilies#nicu#communityawareness
