This isn't the journey we all thought it would be. Days, weeks and sometimes years in the hospital, continuously cheering on our little ones to have the best life possible. Here are some resources that we thought would be helpful for your journey. If you can think of other things that would help you, message us!
Here are some ideas and links to resources to help relieve some of the strain of the costs.Whether it is gas, a place to stay or medical bills, we hopefully can lead you in the right direction!
When you need some guidance on what to do next when it comes to your lactation journey, look here. No judgement just love. From Support groups and local resources, to supply ideas. We will lead you in the direction that is right for you.
We will keep updating this with local resources for therapists and psychiatrists that can help your family with PTSD, PPD and family therapy. Having a family member in the ICU can cause a lot of strain and we all need to find the support to advocate for whole family health.
Parent to Parent
Walking the ICU path can be really difficult. We are starting a series of Podcasts dedicated to the journey of the ICU parent. We will share the name once it is finalized and where to listen. Next we will will be starting local support groups for ICU parents currently and formerly in the ICU. Sometimes it's easier to heal when you can connect with someone who understands.
Are you on your way to discharge or been out for a little while and struggling to find resources?
Let's help connect some dots for you. It is so hard to do all the research to see what is out there and take care of a fragile child and ourselves. We put as many local resources together as we could so you could look in one place. We hope this helps!
Housework getting away from you?
