NICU familes of Neenah, WI Childrens Hospital

A group of former and present parents of NICU babies. There are also a number of nurses and respiratory therapists and of course, Dr. Debbie herself! A place we can all share common experiences and hopefully make some new NICU parent friends! Maybe you will even run into an old "Roommate!"

For myself, having a preemie (24 weeker) is the scariest, most rewarding aspect of my life. I felt the need to have "somewhere" to go after Brielle came home. Which is how the group came about! Somewhere where people understood my concerns, my triumphs and my fears! I hope you all feel the same!

Every year, we are hoping to put on a "Family Reunion" Picnic for all the familes that have been in the NICU. We try to keep the picnic the second weekend in August so families can plan ahead. 2011 was our first year and was a great success! We had roughly 110 people come!! Watch the posts for upcoming information on this years picnic!!!
