Our Family Group is for all family members: mamas, daddies, and Grands during your NICU journey. The support group meets one day every week for facilitated conversation, sharing of stories, and collaborative skills building. As needed, the facilitator leads brainstorming and problem-solving sessions, connect parents to other professionals, and bring in experts to provide information and strategies around specific issues facing those parents.

The Details:

Every Monday 1PM (MST)

NICU Family Group

A trained facilitator leads group discussion where it is most needed in the moment, whether that be with sharing of a birth story and information about a child’s condition, relating difficulties handling strong emotions, asking questions about healthcare issues and treatments, sharing experiences or asking for advice in meeting financial challenges or relationship problems, learning to advocate for themselves and their children, or getting help accessing mental health and non-medical professional resources.

Three core skills are emphasized:

  1. Emotional literacy
  2. Stress management
  3. Understanding and navigating key relationships with medical staff, family members, and other allies.

Love for Lily’s goals in all of our programming are:

  • To provide social, emotional, and logistical support to families with children who have been hospitalized in the Neonatal Intensive Care Units of area hospitals.
  • To provide non-medical services that aim to connect parents to other NICU families and to community resources that may reduce the incidence of postpartum mood disorders in this population of parents.
  • To educate and empower the families of NICU infants to take a more proactive and involved role in the care of their children while in the NICU in order to help alleviate feelings of helplessness and fear and to strengthen bonds between babies and parents.
  • To connect all families served with available and appropriate therapeutic and community resources as needed.
