Birdies For Charity Spotlight: Cradling New Life

Cradling New Life helps families who have infants in Iowa hospitals’ Neonatal Intensive Care Units (NICUs) and those addressing antepartum issues.  Assistance is provided financially and by raising awareness.  Babies are admitted to NICUs due to premature birth, complications arising during delivery, or signs of ill health which occur within the first few days of life. Cradling New Life’s ongoing project, “A House To Come Home To” helps to cover mortgage of parents who miss work because of their primary job, being at the hospital to spend time with their struggling new born. Mortgage payments are typically the largest of the monthly bills and when a baby is ready to leave the NICU, it is important that they have a comfortable and stress-free home to come to. With the matching fund that Birdies For Charity provides, Cradling New Life is able to help an additional 10 families make their monthly payments while supporting their new baby.
