Meet and Greets
This section will list all the meet and greet sessions that are run throughout the country. These sessions provide families the opportunity to meet other families in a relaxed environment. It can be very beneficial for families to meet other families who understand and know the problems, stresses and worries parents face not just when their baby is in the NICU but also in the months and years to follow. These sessions relies on volunteer parents to arrange these sessions in their local area. We can help with promoting your session on our website, facebook and twitter and we can notify local media for you. If you would like to set up your own meet and greet session, please contact the team. For further details of forthcoming meet and greets please contact the family support team at or Mandy on our helpline.
