This is a group for moms who have a story to tell about the birth of their premature baby. We will be supportive of each other and discuss everything from your birth story, pre-birth plan, emergency cesareans, bradycardias and the NICU, to where you are now and the milestones that your strong baby or child is conquering!.

Many thanks to Jen Vellano, the original organizer of this group.  She's the mom of a 30-weeker and couldn't find too much support out there, and thought that a Meetup would be helpful.  What a wonderful idea!  Due to Jen's very busy schedule, I've decided to step up to help.

I'm Lorrie, mom to Ryan, a former 28 weeker.   I'm looking forward to scheduling lots of meet ups and getting to know all of you better.  We share a special bond and special journey and only those who've been down this preemie road really know what it's all about.  :-)
