Dear Hartley: A Mother's Micro-Preemie Birth Story

Dear Hartley: A Mother's Micro-Preemie Birth Story

All of us here at Preemie Store love to see pictures of a little preemie in clothing, especially since it signals a significant milestone in their life. Nothing makes my day any brighter than when I am scrolling social media, and I come across a picture of a preemie wearing some of our clothing, or when a preemie parent shares some pictures with us. That is exactly how we first became aware of little Hartley; her Mom posted a photo of her in a Perfectly Preemie Gumdrop outfit. We have now come to love this little fighter and are so glad to follow her story on Instagram and see how well she is doing! I asked her Mom, Taylor, to share her birth story. It helps remind us again how blessed we are for great doctors and nurses that help these little fighters come out of the NICU winners!

Good Things Can Come from Doubling Your Trouble!

We have been loving hearing and sharing parent's stories about their NICU journeys! Today we have another story for you to read that we are especially excited to share with you since we have had the privilege of carrying her books for a while. The way this preemie mom found a way to help other parents going through this journey inspires me. She couldn't find any book to help siblings to understand what the NICU journey looks like, so she decided to start Me Two Books, an organization that uses books as educational tools to help children recognize and embrace differences in themselves and others.

The Long Road Home

The Long Road Home

We have recently written blog posts titled, "Preemie Parent - It's Not Your Fault!" and "Can Preemie Parents Have PTSD?" When writing these articles I was inspired to add a category to our Blog labeled "Preemie Parent Stories." It is my hope that by reading other parents' stories and struggles you will find that your are not alone. With this thought in mind, I recently spotted an Instagram post by @butterfly.gypzee where she shared her story of becoming a preemie mother. She has graciously given us permission to share her story with you. I know you are going to like it!
