About Bob Selby


Holding Tiny Hands Foundation

Bob is two time NICU Dad of Jack (born at 25 weeks) and Tommy (28 weeks). Bob and his wife Susan created the Holding Tiny Hands Foundation and serve NICU families in Iowa. Bob is a seasoned public speaker and brings real insight into the world of the NICU Father. Through laughter and tears, Bob can help you understand what it’s like to be part of the “minimized” NICU population (the Dads) and work you through real, practical strategies to reach “the other half.”
