High Risk Hope is a nonprofit organization in Tampa that provides support, encouragement, information and resources to women and families who are experiencing a high risk pregnancy resulting in hospital bed rest, potential premature birth and neonatal intensive care after delivery. High Risk Hope is a catalyst in the fight to end premature birth; winning a life-long victory with every baby they help.

In 2014, the organization held an inaugural calendar baby contest open to families that High Risk Hope has served. The winning submissions received professional photography services and were featured in a calendar that was distributed to other high risk patients and also available for purchase to raise awareness.
