Please enjoy Preemie Prints' families’ inspirational story & photos.
Consider supporting our mission to share hope with families who have a baby born prematurely or critically ill. We thank our supporters, Preemie Prints volunteers, and donors for allowing us to continue touching the lives of NICU, preemie, and angel families.
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
“Clay was born at 23 weeks gestation and was 1lb 6oz and 11 1/2 inches. I went into labor at 22 weeks and 5 days for no reason.
Clay was given minimal chance of survival. He started out with a PDA ligation, emergency NEC surgery where he had 17 cm of intestines removed, a fungal yeast infection in and outside of his body which reached his brain and is still there, ostomy, colostomy reversal, g-tube surgery, seizures. I have a video that needs to be watched on a PC.“https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lYlBqIkloDQ
A Note From Phaedra:
"Clay was a joy to work with. He truly is a miracle! He was all smiles and such a happy baby. It was a pleasure getting to meet this little wonder."

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 Virginia Beach, VA.
We're thankful to the family for sharing their story & memories in support of other NICU families.
