We pray these special memories from Preemie Prints
will help families heal and remember how strong
they were in overcoming their NICU journey together.
A NICU STORY | THOUGHTS FROM MOM
"I was diagnosed with chorioamniotic separation at 18 weeks pregnant as well as cervical incompetence. I bled from 5 weeks until 24 weeks. The doctors never thought we'd make it to viability at 24 weeks. On June 30th at exactly 27weeks my water broke. I kept calm and we headed to the hospital. The amazing doctors were able to keep our guy inside me for an additional 3 weeks. I delivered a screaming 3 lbs 6oz baby boy at exactly 30 weeks."

A note from Deanna:
I had a wonderful time volunteering for my first Preemie Prints shoot! I loved watching the Choate family bond and how their baby boy, Chaos, responded to his parents. What a special moment and I appreciate them letting me be a part of it!

Preemie Prints is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization sharing hope with NICU families through a variety of support programs. One of those programs is the gift of NICU photography and preemie photography. NICU families from across the US can request a no-charge photography session by a Preemie Prints volunteer. The family request from can be found on the right side of our website. These sessions are free of charge and for any NICU family, regardless of time spent in the NICU. The NICU photo shoot can take place inside the NICU or after baby is discharged and at home until their 1st birthday. Facing time in a NICU with a premature or critically ill baby is an extremely difficult time for families. Preemie Prints has a mission to share hope by letting families know they are not alone. Preemie Prints currently has over 100 volunteers nationwide. We are always looking for more volunteers to share in our mission! If you are interested, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and visit our website at www.preemieprints.org. To date Preemie Prints and our volunteers have gifted over 400 NICU family sessions.
This was a Preemie Prints NICU graduate photography session that took place near Oklahoma City, OK.
We're thankful to the family for sharing their story & memories in support of other NICU families.
