My NICU Family


My mission with My NICU Family is to spread Love and healing through NICU communities. I enjoy connecting with NICU Moms, Dads, family members & friends. I look forward to each new caregivers group, NICU nurse, staff member and team leader that reaches out to find insights & to share knowledge about how to make their programs even better for the families that they serve.

Post-NICU care is a passion of mine because I struggled a lot in and after the NICU. I felt alone at times, like I "should be able to do it” all by myself, and felt totally overwhelmed by this newness that was my new normal.

NICU parenting is a journey.
Support comes from connection, and Love is the goal.

Our struggles are real.
Our worries are real.
Our joys are immense.

When we can come together to wrap our arms around each other and provide Love & understanding, all is okay if only for a moment.

Leanne Rose Dorish

Hello beautiful, thanks for being here!

My name is Leanne Rose and I live in Salmon Arm, BC, Canada with my wonderful husband and very energetic son. I wear so many hats but right now the ones I wear the most often are trauma therapist, caring wife and loving mother.

I was having dinner at a friend’s home when I realized I was in labour 9 weeks earlier than expected. After delivering Skye, he and I had complication after complication and I quickly learned how important it was to take control over my own care. I found myself wondering how this could have happened, why was I so unprepared and what was I going to do now?

I am continuously learning about how to self-care and learns what it looks like from day to day. Being a trauma therapist before having a NICU experience has made me realize how incredibly powerful our own minds are.

Every moment has been a blessing and we are so very grateful for the teams of doctors, nurses, specialists and supporting staff who were by our side and helping us understand the situation we were in together.
We are also deeply changed by the Divine interventions that took place. With prayer and the angels who are always by our side.

You are never alone my darling.
Send me an email or reach out through one of my social media avenues. 

I very much look forward to hearing from you.
With loads of Love,
