I know we have discussed this before but my hospital had a Parents Group and it sort of went away as the parents' children all got older etc.

I remember asking the nurse the night Maggie was born if there was some sort of parent group and she said there WAS. So I need to give back and start up one. The Nurse Practcnr and Neo in charge of Follow up asked me if I was interested in spear heading this.

My question: I know what I would have liked to have, what is some ideas for a PArent network?

I have a few things I am tossing up in the air:

Keep it for this specific NICU and show the other nicus how to start one

Have meetings for parents currently in the nicu or after or both?

Have support parents for current nicu parents from parents who BTDT?

Start up website

What else??
