Membership Policies

Preemies Today has a secure, online forum with over 1,000 members.  This forum is composed primarily of preemie parents whose children range in age from newborns in the NICU to adolescents.  The Preemies Today online community is a place where members ask and respond to questions daily.  Frequent topics include: questions about how to deal with various challenges in the NICU, utilization of early intervention, and support.

New members are welcome to request a mentor through the Parent-to-Parent Match Program.  Preemies Today tries to match new parents with members who had children at a similar gestational age or have experience with particular areas of interest.

Preemies Today uses its online community and social media to advertise events in the Washington, DC metropolitan area.  Parents, relatives, and friends of a preemie and health care professionals are welcome to join Preemies Today.  Membership is free.
