The Tiny Footprints Guild, the journey of two mothers

tinyfootprintsguild

I was lucky enough to meet two extremely strong local mothers who have given birth to preemies, one who eventually took her daughter home, one whose son became an Angel.  These two amazing women started a local guild, the Tiny Footprints Guild in support of the Global Alliance to Prevent Prematurity and Stillbirth.  I’m proud to be able to share their story. view full post »

It’s a Preemie Thing launches blog
