Who We Are - Peeps - HIE Awareness & Support

Who We Are

Who We Are

Peeps was set up in 2018 by Sarah & Steve. Here’s a quick note from Sarah to explain why:

We found ourselves in the world of HIE when our daughter was born in March 2015 – she stopped breathing shortly after birth and, without any warning, our NICU journey began. Neither of us had heard of HIE before, none of our friends or family had, and let’s be honest, it was a scary time. I googled it (going against the advice of all the nurses of course!), and luckily found a Facebook forum for families. If it hadn’t been for that group, the advice and information offered by other mums and dads, I think we might still have been wondering what on earth was going on! So, we wanted to change things a bit, reach out to families in the early days, and bring the
information to them, rather than them having to look for it.

Every HIE journey is going to be different, but there can be similarities and celebrations, as well as the uncertainties and worrying times. Peeps can be along-side you whenever you need us, whether that’s today, next week or in a few months’ time.
