About Us

The Canadian Premature Babies Foundation was founded by Katharina Staub, the mother of prematurely-born twins. Our team now consists of parents and clinicians, working together to improve experiences and outcomes for children born preterm.

Our mission is to support and educate Canadian families of premature babies every step of the way – before, during and after their NICU stays. 

Our vision is to create a brighter future for all premature babies and those who care for them. 


Participants at our first National Family Consultative Meeting share their vision for the foundation and their experiences of prematurity
