We are gearing up for an exciting July. Not only do we have fun events planned, but we will be celebrating one of our own sweet babies, Deacon George. It is hard to believe that just a year ago, I (Brittany), was pregnant with this chunky little guy and eagerly waiting his arrival. Some of you may not know that Deacon was sick following delivery. He had a stay in the pediatric department under the care of the NICU and pediatric teams at Shady Grove Hospital. To possibly explain my love and admiration for NICU moms and the nurses and doctors that support them in not possible. The team that took care of both Deacon and myself became family (Shout out to Dr. Hickey, Lakshmi, Ivanna, Jill and Sandi) and I gathered a whole new appreciation for NICU moms; Motherhood makes you strong and being a NICU mom makes you even stronger.
At Frederick Moms and Doulas we know our NICU moms deserve an extra helping of our love and support. So, in celebration of Deacon's birth and a year of supporting strong moms, we are excited to host an event July 25th at 6:30 at Riverside Midwifery. During the event we hope to see some familiar faces! Let's join together to support our local NICUs and send words of encouragement by creating notebooks for moms that find themselves in these tough and often unexpected situations. The notebooks and care packages will be sent to both FMH and Shady Grove to support local NICU moms.
RSVP on our event page and we can't wait to see you there!
