PIPA offers several forms of on-going support for the families of Premature Babies.
On-going Telephone support
This is always available for Parents. Sometimes after the baby has been discharged from the hospital, Parents may wish to speak to others who have been in a similar situation, or whose child has experienced the same problems. This can be especially important for regional families who may be isolated from hospitals or healthcare facilities. A listing of local and regional telephone contacts are available in the PIPA newsletter.
