NIDCAP supports development, enhances strengths, and minimizes stress for infants, family, and staff who care for them. Parent Support Organizations play a critical role in Family-Centered Developmental care and can often act as a liaison to enhance partnerships between NICU families and clinicians. In this webinar, we will discuss the various types of parent organizations, the importance of peer-to-peer support in supporting parental mental health, and how your unit can begin to partner with parent organizations in meaningful ways.

This webinar is designed for any and all healthcare professionals and parents involved in newborn intensive care.

Upon completion of this educational activity, participants should be able to:

1. Identify different types of parent organizations
2. Describe the importance of peer-to-peer support in parental mental health
3. Reflect on opportunities to partner with parent organizations

Keira Sorrells, Founder & Executive Director, NICU Parent Network

As Founder and Executive Director of the NICU Parent Network (NPN), Keira Sorrells has been leading the movement to elevate the NICU Parent Leader as professional in maternal infant health. After giving birth to triplets at just 25 weeks 5 days gestation and losing one of her daughters at 14 months old, Keira was propelled into maternal infant health out of an unshakeable desire to ensure no parent experiences the trauma of preterm birth or loss alone. Together, with a dedicated team of NICU Parent Leaders, Keira has grown the NICU Parent Network to be the premier professional organization for NICU Parent Leaders who collectively represent the needs and best interests of NICU families. Over the last decade, NPN has become a sought-after resource and collaborative partner for providers, researchers, industry and other stakeholders in this niche of healthcare.
