Miracle Babies is a 501(c)3 nonprofit that was founded to support NICU families. When a baby is born premature or with medical complications, that family’s life changes drastically. Stress becomes a near constant emotion, difficult decisions must be made, and life in the NICU becomes a reality.
This unexpected journey is one that no parent hopes to experience, and often times, something that many families are unprepared for financially. Miracle Babies’s founding purpose is to support these NICU families by providing needs-based financial assistance to low-income families through our Family Assistance Program. By helping to address some of the financial barriers that keep parents away from their new baby (transportation, groceries, and child care costs), we help moms and dads get to and from the NICU more often, increasing rates of breastfeeding and Kangaroo Care, a skin-to-skin practice.
In addition to our direct financial assistance program, we also support NICU families through the distribution of MB Cares Bags. These bags are distributed on a monthly basis to hospitals throughout the county of San Diego and contain items designed to support families during their NICU stays.
Miracle Babies also recognizes the importance of research, in decreasing future preterm births, and works closely with multiple community partners to advance the collective understanding of preterm birth, and design interventions that result in better health outcomes for NICU babies.
We are together for a better beginning.
