Preemie Moms Rock

(WBAL) A woman in Baltimore is making a difference by helping parents while their preemie newborns get the care they need.

Premature babies sometimes need special care, but despite being small, they are fighters. In a place that helps the tiniest of patients, the NICU can be overwhelming for parents.

Natalie Estelle had her baby, Andrea, at 25 weeks. She was in the NICU for nine weeks. The experience inspired Estelle to help other parents. She started a nonprofit called Preemie Moms Rock.

“We actually come to hospitals and help feed the moms healthy meals, we do therapeutic crafts with them and we also do a parent-to-parent support,” Estelle said.

She is able to give them a break from the overwhelmingness of the NICU and offer encouragement.

Estelle started the organization less than two years ago and goes to three Baltimore area hospitals. She hopes to be in all the NICU’s in Maryland one day.
