We know that parenting a baby in the NICU is hard because we’ve been there too.

NICU parents are at higher risk for perinatal mood disorders (PMADS) like postpartum depression, postpartum anxiety, and PTSD, and often don’t receive the mental health support they need. Many parents don’t realize the full impact of their experience or seek help until long after their babies have been discharged from the NICU, sometimes years later.

Richmond Parents of Preemies Connect (RPPConnect) can help!

Every month RPPConnect hosts a community-based peer-led, and clinician supported NICU Parenting Circle. Our families have experience unique to preterm birth and parenting in the NICU, however, these communities are open to ALL parents and family of NICU babies, no matter the journey.

Whether you are parenting a baby in the NICU right now, or your NICU “baby” is a
toddler—or older—this group is for YOU!

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic RPPConnect has temporarily suspended all in-person meetings.

Beginning in April, there will be a virtual option and more information will be posted here. Thank you for your patience!
