What We Do
PIPA is passionate about providing understanding, support, information, encouragement, and friendship to parents of preterm infants. Only a prem parent can really understand what another prem parent is going through. The emotions, the fears, and joys of being a prem parent. All our volunteers have experienced firsthand what it means to be a parent to a baby born too soon or sick. So, they know what you are going through and are there to share. You don’t need to do it alone.
If contacting a PIPA volunteer or attending a parent support group is not your thing don’t worry. We have lots of information that you may find useful. Helping parents to get through the roller coaster ride of having and raising a prem is what we are all about and doing in the way that suits you is our goal
