Hope for HIE – Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy Hope for HIE – Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy

Get Connected

Hope for HIE began with a virtual network of parents seeking to connect after their child had been diagnosed with HIE (Hypoxic Ischemic Encephalopathy). We have families all around the globe, and many local groups that host meet ups, awareness and fundraising events, and other opportunities to connect.


We host over 100 topic-focused and location-based support groups found on Facebook. Upon requesting, you will be sent a few questions to be verified before adding you into our network. All questions need to be answered before you will be granted entry.

Find Your Group

If you are a legal parent or guardian of a child with HIE, we invite you to request our main parent forum.

Main Parent Forum

If you are new to the journey, within the first year post diagnosis, our New to HIE group has designated administrators and moderators who come with years of experience and are standing by to support the unique needs of our new families who find us.

New to HIE Forum

If you are a grandparent, aunt, uncle or other extended family member, we also have a group for you.

Extended Family Support

Need additional information or support?

Contact us by sending an email and one of our board of directors will reach out.

If you don’t have Facebook, reach out to us to be connected to a local HIE family.
