Welcome to The Mother's Day Project
After six years and tens of thousands of dollars raised for hundreds of moms, we are pausing operations. Read more below!
Around 10 - 15% of infants in the United States will spend time in a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) (Source)
That means more than 1 in 10 new mothers will find herself unexpectedly facing more stress and uncertainty during an already challenging time.
In a surprise NICU visit, it's too easy to forget about Mom's health and wellbeing. Too many of us do.
The Mother's Day Project is about remembering Mom when she's focused on everything else.
Hear from a NICU mom:
"The Mother’s Day Project and what they offer is monumentally important and that cannot be overstated. As a NICU mom, you are thirsty for any kind of solidarity and for people who care about your well-being and aren’t just desperate for updates about your kid— you’re happy to give those updates, but the interactions that are a glass of cold water for your soul are those in which people make it evident that they care deeply about your health, too. The Mother’s Day Project earnestly sees women who are working through something traumatic and gives them a glimmer of life before the anthology of medical knowledge and daily hospital visits. It gives them the chance to care for themselves in tangible ways, if only for a moment, and that is completely invaluable."
