We are so excited to partner with the Foundation for Premature Infants! This organization, headed by Michael Litten and supported by a team of developmental therapy professionals, is working to provide every preemie with the chance for developmentally appropriate care in the NICU. Check out their “Preemie Bill of Rights “ here.

Sadly I have heard of too many parents with preemies that were denied the Synagis shot and despite their best efforts at hand-washing, isolation and more, they still wound up in the hospital with RSV. As a parent that suffered through a winter with RSV isolation and more but was lucky enough to get the Synagis drug for my daughter, I find this an insult to families everywhere and I am doing my part to speak on behalf of these vulnerable families.
