We propose a series of initiatives to accompany and help families with premature babies.
We want to accompany families on this path, providing them with a meeting point, support, information and learning where they feel listened to and in which they can share experiences, resolve doubts, listen to concerns and / or opinions, and of course share the successes.
How do we do it?
We do periodic accompaniment to parents admitted to the NICU of the different hospitals throughout Catalonia.
We establish contact with other parents who have gone through the same experience that you are going through and elaborate workshops along with the different neonatal units during the admission to deal with the concerns during this stage.
We also want to offer, as expert patients, Information about the help, resources that may be needed and directed, putting families in contact with the different professionals they need at all times, especially at the time of the baby’s birth and also offer support as of that moment
We celebrate special days like Christmas, Kings, Sant Jordi, days in which the absence of being able to enjoy together and at home these dates means that the relatives need additional support.
The support and accompaniment we offer is done in person, by phone, or via email.
However, we also offer accompaniment to families who are in long-term income due to high risk pregnancy.
You can find us at the NICUs of hospitals with which we have agreements accompanying parents. If you do not see us ask your Unit. If you can not, you can also call the association’s telephone number 626873249 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to send us any questions.
At the moment we have an agreement signed with the ICS to be able to attend all the parents that are admitted to the different hospitals of the network of the Catalan Institute of the Health.
This project is undergoing expansion and we are opening new avenues of collaboration with all the hospitals in Catalonia, who have families with preterm infants and who are interested in being able to provide this service to their NICU.

An ambitious project that has a National scope: All Catalonia and Andorra.
It consists in the creation of a network of preadolescents from all over Catalonia so that they can accompany, guide and share experiences in the territory.

As well as help and to serve as a consult and help with prematurity and touch all the transversal issues that occur in the birth and upbringing of a child @ prematur @.
Parents who have their children admitted need special attention and training. From the Premature Association we believe that parents may choose to attend Specialized Workshops given by professionals specialized in family-centered care and to be able to attend talks made by expert parents to accompany and train the new parents of premature to empower themselves and be able to enjoy good care centered on development and the family.
