Fragile Beginnings Phone Support Group

This telephone support group for parents whose babies have spent time in the NICU provides an opportunity to connect with other parents who have shared similar experiences and concerns:

  • Share your story
  • Support others and be supported
  • Exchange information, ideas, and strategies
  • Nurture yourself as you make meaning of this unexpected journey

This group, facilitated by a Fragile Beginnings Clinician, typically meets weekly and parents are invited to register for one month at a time. By participating for a full month, parents are given the opportunity to get to know one another. The group is offered at no charge to participants.

***In light of the COVID-19 situation, we are currently offering "drop in" phone support hours to give parents a chance to connect with one another and with a Fragile Beginnings clinician. No registration is necessary for these drop in calls.

When:  Fridays (1:30 - 2:30 p.m.): 3/20, 3/27, 4/3
Wednesdays (9:00 - 10:00 a.m.): 3/25, 4/1

Where: The number to call is 1-800-309-2350; then enter 537-7895# at the prompt.

This group is offered by the Oliver, Ian, and Serenity Wolk Fragile Beginnings program of the JF&CS Center for Early Relationship Support®. JF&CS is a nonsectarian, nonprofit human services agency.
