The Gift of Life offers hope, encouragement, and support to parents of premature babies in the neonatal intensive care unit.

Why The Gift of Life? 

Helping to Heal the Emotional and Financial Trauma that Results from Preterm Birth

Premature birth is more common than we'd like to think. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), preterm birth happens to 15 million babies a year. And that number is on the rise. After having a son born prematurely, Rosie Moore decided to found The Gift of Life. She created this non-profit organization as a way of giving back for all the love and support she received. And as an acknowledgement of the emotional, financial, and physical struggles of parents and preemies in the NICU. We appreciate your support. 

Because one person can make a difference...

As we approach Mother’s Day and you start to think about what a mother is, what your mother did for you and how you can make someone’s mother day special, this letter came to my mind shared by a fellow NICU ( Neonatal Intesnive Care Unit) mother to another.  After going through this experience myself, I know how both mothers feel.

You may have had a lactation consultant, a nurse or your physician reference the breastmilk you are providing to your preterm baby as “Liquid Gold”.  Research supports the importance to feeding your breastmilk to your baby during critical weeks while in the NICU.  But did you know you can increase the level of some nutrients in your breastmilk by what you choose to eat, which can potentially result in better outcomes for your baby?
