Parents' Corner—Information that gives the support you need in the NICU
Information and Support for Parents of Premature Babies
The birth of a child is a wondrous, life-changing experience. It is a time of great joy and emotion, but it may also be a time of worries and questions. For the parents of premature babies, these worries and questions are amplified—from the moment of birth to the moment your child gets to come home. While at times you may feel overwhelmed, it may help to know that you are not alone.
Knowledge is Key
For parents of neonates, knowledge is a key to helping with their children’s progress and growth. The more you know and understand about their needs, the more you can support them and the staff who help to care for them.
