Miracle Babies Pre-Gala Reception

Miracle Babies held their pre-gala VIP reception at a private estate in La Jolla in anticipation of their forthcoming fundraising event, La Fête Magnifique on October 23rd at the Rancho Valencia Resort & Spa.The festive occasion with live music, cocktails and heavy hors d'oeuvres, enlivened by a lively gathering of attendees, set the tone for what promises to be exciting and fun-filled evening in late October, held to support the tremendously successful work by the non-profit organization.Miracle Babies mission is to provide direct and supportive services so families can be with their critically ill babies in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), thereby reducing the babies' stress and changing health outcomes.

Miracle Babies supports NICU families in three ways:

Transportation Assistance, helping families in need get to the hospital to be with their newborn(s).

Miracle Hours provide a unique opportunity for NICU parents to get together, share concerns and feel the support of peers who understand the intricacies and challenges of having a baby in the NICU. Often parents struggle with feelings of isolation, causing anxiety and depression at the precise time their baby needs them the most. Facilitated by Miracle Babies staff and a hospital  social worker, these gatherings build camaraderie in a safe and healing environment.

Distribution of MB Care Bags, containing essential items and resource materials to aid and comfort families during their baby's NICU stay.
