And their Family
While your baby receives the best possible care, Préma-Québec is here to guide and take care of you – as a subtle presence, for as long as you need — until your life returns to normal. Learn about all the services available to you.
Every year in Quebec, 6,000 babies arrive earlier than expected. Which means that ready or not, 12,000 parents see their lives turned upside down by the ordeal of prematurity. Learn more about prematurity so that you can help them better deal with what’s to come.
It takes a whole village to support a parent, and that’s particularly true for parents of preemies. Everyone has a role to play, from qualified medical personnel and parents who’ve gone through similar experiences to professionals and people like you. No matter how you help, your contribution is crucial.
Last September, Préma-Québec invited people in Sherbrooke, Quebec City and Montreal to walk for premature babies. Over $40,000 was raised to help the province's premature children and their families. As 2023 marked the organization's 20th anniversary, the Walk festivities culminated in a Family Celebration - a first for the organization! A huge thank you to our partners, the elected officials in attendance, our guest of honour, Kim Clavel, our invaluable volunteers, and the hundreds of families who walked and collected donations for the cause!
