CaringBridge Connect NICU Parents with Their Families

Another helpful resource for connecting NICU Parents with their Families is CaringBridge.

CaringBridge® is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit web service that connects family and friends during a critical illness, treatment or recovery.

Like CarePages, CaringBridge is another way of helping NICU parents stay connected with family and friends by creating a free, personalized web page.

What is a CaringBridge Web Page?

A CaringBridge web page is an easy way to keep loved ones informed during difficult times. Each CaringBridge website includes:

  • Patient care journal to update family and friends
  • Guestbook for messages
  • Photo gallery
  • Free online support for using the service
Some of the benefits of CaringBridge over other connecting web pages is that CaringBridge pages are offered in both English and Spanish. In addition they do not have banner ads or pop–ups.

You can read More about CaringBridge at the article on Type-A Mom.
