Invaluable For Us & Our Baby

“In the beginning of my NICU journey I cried every day. There is no other outlet for the hurt, the sadness, the fear – especially the fear – of giving birth so early. In NICU, everything about those first weeks is different to how it should be. You emerge from that darkness into an intense, overwhelming, medical world where you feel utterly helpless to do the most natural thing: care for your baby. Stumbling upon EiSMART was like finding fresh air, after a long, dark time under water. It helped me recover purpose; recover focus; recover the ability to care for my baby.”
