I believe every baby has unlimited potential and, with a little guidance, can achieve greatness.


Beyond Preemie's goal is to support and guide families while providing the tools needed to advance milestones, changing the trajectory of infant outcomes.

Together we can build a foundation for a lifetime of learning, wellness, and success so your baby can thrive beyond five.


Neonatal Therapy Mentoring, Pediatric Occupational Therapy, and Wellness Consultations


 Mentoring Program

Guiding Greatness is a Neonatal Therapy mentoring program for Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists and Speech-Language Pathologists offering one-on-one virtual sessions with experts in the field of Neonatal therapy.

Get the support you want to elevate the Neonatal Therapy practice, thrive in your environment, expand your services and grow the service line.

Occupational Therapy

Pediatric Occupational Therapy services are individual sessions

at our Beyond Preemie clinic,

addressing feeding and developmental concerns from birth through the first 5 years.  


Specializing in feeding therapy,

tube weaning, feeding refusal, selective and restrictive eating, picky eating, promoting positive feeding engagement,

expanding food repertoire, standardized developmental testing, and advancing developmental skills for premature infants, NICU graduates, and newborn babies throughout the first five years.  

Wellness Consultations

Wellness consults are virtual sessions for all of your baby milestone questions.


Sometimes we want an easier way to get our questions answered. 

From feeding to sleeping, first foods to first steps, get advice without leaving home.
