Preemie Parent Alliance

 For Preemie Parents...By Preemie Parents

Preemie Parent Alliance represents organizations that provide support to parents of preemies. We are committed to supporting the growth and development of our members to help improve the quality and effectiveness of the services they provide. 



Preemie Parent Alliance is a network of organizations offering support to families of premature infants. To ensure best outcomes for preemie families, the Preemie Parent Alliance is dedicated to representing the needs and best interests of preemie families in all facets of healthcare policy, care guidelines, advocacy, education and family support. As a national network we are establishing a unified parent voice to advocate for infants, who cannot speak for themselves, and their families. Together, we represent more than 250,000 NICU and bereaved families across the country.

Introducing our New Speakers Bureau Members

In 2014, we introduced our PPA Speakers Bureau. Made up exclusively of preemie parent leaders, the Preemie Parent Alliance carefully hand selects speakers who are professional, personable & knowledgable. This year, after careful consideration, we are excited to welcome new members of our Bureau. We look forward to focusing all of our efforts on you - the client. We strive to select the speaker who is right for your event; one who compliments your goals and objectives, as well as your audience.

PPA proudly unveiled the NICU Parent's Bill of Rights at the 2013 National Association of Neonatal Nurse's conference in Nashville, TN. We received wonderful feedback from the nurses, parents, and advocates in attendance and encourage you to view it, download it, print it, and share it with the hospitals you support!

This is a members only library of helpful and practical information, shared by our members on such topics as "Finding the right CRM program for your organization", "Volunteer Training", and many others.
