I didn’t have a NICU baby, but I’ve seen so many mothers go through it. I know it’s a real struggle. I also know that before it happens to you it feels impossible to prepare. What will you do? How can you survive the days of not knowing? My amazing friend Alexa is here with a few pieces of advice for you if you find yourself in this situation. I know you might not remember them all so make sure to have your friends listen so they’ll know what to do in your moments of need. We love you and support you, and you’re doing an amazing job. We all need a little help sometimes.
