Virtual Baby Shower & Clothing Drive for Methodist Women’s Hospital NICU: Nov. 4-30

November Is Prematurity Awareness Month

When babies arrive early, parents are often unprepared with the necessities a premature infant needs. In addition, the stress and financial burden of having a baby in the NICU can make it difficult to purchase the items needed.

During Prematurity Awareness Month, help us shower the families and babies at Methodist Women's Hospital's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit with much-needed supplies.

This shower helps the NICU keep a stock of new and gently used items to use for the preemies on the unit. Baby blankets and outfits that are not hospital issued help parents feel more at home.
 

Baby Items Needed

Donations of the following new or gently-used items are needed:

  • Onesies (preemie, newborn and 0-3 months)
  • Bottoms (preemie, newborn and 0-3 months)
  • Infant sleepers (preemie, newborn and 0-3 months)
  • Baby board books
  • Receiving blankets

NEW This Year: Methodist NICU Is on Target's Baby Gift Registry

For easy online giving or in-store purchases, the Women's Hospital NICU is registered at Target under the last name Methodist, first name NICU.
