Partners in Your Baby's Care

When your baby was admitted to NICU she/he began a journey. This journey may take just a few days or may go on for many weeks depending on the size and diagnosis of your baby when she/he was born. We want you to know that we will be with you every step of the way answering questions, helping you learn your baby’s care, calming your fears and supporting you in whatever way we can. You are the most important people in your infant’s life, and we want you to feel comfortable bonding and caring for your baby on his/her journey through our unit.

In Newborn Intensive Care, parents and health care providers work together as partners in your baby’s care. In the next sections are listed ways in which you can be a part of the team. Please feel free to ask any questions you might have regarding this information.
