Parents of Preemies Day is a national day of awareness taking place on Sunday, March 10th, 2013 that recognizes the courage and commitment it takes to stay strong and resilient when premature birth turns a family's world upside down. Each year, 13 million babies are born prematurely across the globe – many right here in our area. Though medical breakthroughs continue to improve outcomes for preemies, experts are only now beginning to understand the intense psychological effects that premature birth has on parents.
To mark the initiatives second year, the organizers of Parents of Preemies Day are bringing awareness to a global audience. To do this, volunteers are hosting community events across the world, NICUs will be celebrating across the country, and national media coverage will highlight the courage and commitment of all preemie parents. With your help, we will be able to accomplish these goals and make the second annual Parents of Preemies Day a success.
