Research Study regarding Safe Sleep for Pre-Term Infants
Caring for a preterm baby can be challenging. We are seeking ways to better understand decisions regarding sleep arrangements for preterm infants.
Research Study: Mothers’ Decision-Making Concerning Safe Sleep for Preterm Infants:
What are the influencing factors? The purpose of this research study is to identify factors influencing mothers’ decisions regarding sleep practices for preterm infants.
The study is being conducted by Beverly Capper, as a requirement in the Doctor of Nursing Practice program at Case Western Reserve University. Beverly reached out to Mama Bird during the development of this study. It was such an honor to discuss the relationship between mother and infant regarding breastfeeding and sleep!
This survey will help the NICU Medical Staff and NICU Families communicate and create the safest sleep environment for our tiniest humans. Thank you!!!
The BIG Latch On 2019 w/ Mama Bird was a HUGE Success!!!

All proceeds go directly to the Mama Bird NICU Family Scholarship 💓
With the support from local and mother infant geared businesses, we were able to raise enough funding to Sponsor a Cleveland NICU Family for EVERY Month of 2020!!!
This means that Mama Bird can put forth efforts in promoting the Mama Bird NICU Family Scholarship to all 5 Cleveland Area NICUs by working closely with the medical teams to help our most vulnerable, tiny humans and their families have the best start in their journey!
As a NICU mother, this accomplishment leaves me speechless. Thank you ALL!!!
