NICU + MamaRoo
Why are MamaRoo Infant Seats needed in NICUs? Because doctors and nurses have found its motions transformational in caring for preemies and babies. Our mission is to give hospital staff and families the extra set of arms they need to comfort their little ones in the NICU.
Project Sweet Peas
Three women came together for support and comfort after their own NICU experience, where they began filling and distributing gift bags of items they wish they had during their stay. Project Sweet Peas slowly grew into a national network of parents and volunteers who are passionate about providing support to families of premature or sick infants, and to those who have been affected by pregnancy and infant loss.
The Superhero Project
After her twins were born 8 weeks early and had to stay in the NICU, founder Kelly Gallagher describes her elevator ride home and leaving her boys behind as the most difficult moment of her life. Since 2015, The Superhero Project team has since built a platform that supports families navigating the NICU through financial support, care packages, and a fast moving MOM division taking over the country. The Superhero Project believes those born small are destined to do BIG things, one family at a time.
Pay It 4ward
Now you can join us in our mission to support NICU staff and babies by simply donating your gently used MamaRoo. 4moms has partnered with Good Buy Gear, a company that makes it easy for parents to buy and sell used baby gear, to collect pre-loved MamaRoos.
For every MamaRoo infant seat donated, 4moms Cares will donate one new unit to a NICU or NICU family in need, up to 200 units.
