When the dream is this... But what happens is this...

Parents' Ribbons:

To make sure that first meeting is still special

- even when it is delayed

Following our own experience, we came up with this idea to help parents separated from their babies before meeting them. We know our idea works as it has been trialled and implemented at St Mary’s Hospital, Portsmouth. It can help a lot of new parents who suddenly find themselves in this void, and would help NICU and Maternity staff to add to the already outstanding care they provide, without unduly adding to their workload.

We need your feedback and support to help us develop and promote this as widely as possible.
