Wanting to help these families is intuitive to people in our profession. We are accustomed to providing support in whatever way we can. It seems to be engrained in our beings.

You, as the certified professionals, IAT’s, and members of ICEA are the heart of our organization. Without you, we would not be able to drive our mission, vision, and values out to the families and individuals we serve.

I want to again, thank all of you for everything you do to support expectant and new parents. It’s not always immediately and sometimes never known the impact you have on their lives.
