Welcome to the Official Website of the 2024 International Kangaroo Care Awareness Day (May 15)

Joelle Carlile and her twins

These twins were born at 29 weeks weighing 2 pounds. Kangaroo Care helped these babies! One twin was healthier than the other not having as many complications. They were both in the NICU for a couple of months. The twin on the right was having a harder time breathing and kept gasping and when she did the other twin would open her eyes wide and would reach for her sister grabbing her hand and holding it, and would keep opening her eyes and starring at her, it made me tear up because it was the most amazing thing ever. The twin having a hard time breathing when she came in contact with her sister her stats on the monitors would go back to normal. So precious!
