Tiny Miracles

Tiny Miracles is a collection of mementos designed for the parents of premature infants.

The project explores how traumatic experiences that new parents face in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit might be transformed by recording and commemorating the most important moments. The collection provides mementos to help parents mark important milestones, such as the first touch of a parent's hand, the first taste of a mother’s milk, and the baby's first unassisted breaths. Tiny Miracles is composed of three parts: a Preemie Bracelet that adapts the common newborn identification band to better suit the premature infant's experience, a Keepsake Box in which parents record special moments and track daily activities, and a band of Milestone beads that provide a constant connection between parent and child.
