Friends of Tiny Hearts

Welcome to the Friends of Tiny Hearts. Chances are if you’re here, you are the proud parent, family member or friend, of a preemie. Having a baby in the NICU can be a stressful, emotional, confusing, happy, sad and exhilarating journey – all wrapped into one. The Friends of Tiny Hearts understand that journey. We’re a group of passionate parents who have been down the NICU road, and come out the other end stronger, and dedicated NICU staff members at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center (UCMC) who are committed to making sure your baby gets the absolute, best care possible. We’re here for you – the families, friends and staff of UCMC’s Level III NICU  – whatever you may need.

Support for NICU Parents 

Friends of Tiny HeartsParenting a preemie – in the hospital and at home – is tough. We’ve compiled a list of helpful and informative resources to help parents during their NICU journey, including websites, blogs, books and support groups. Review our resources, and let us know if you see one that’s missing.
