Healthy, connected,and joyful families

 Supporting babies discharged from the from the

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU)

 and their parents  from the first weeks home

through the early years of life

 

Common concerns expressed by parents after they are discharged from the NICU:

 

We know that all parents have questions when they first come home from the hospital with their baby.  We also know that parents of preemies and babies who have been in the hospital neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) have many more  concerns – whether their baby was hospitalized for several months or just a few days.  We also know that parents have many questions during the first months and even years of their child’s life.

Because every baby is unique and special, and families come from many different backgrounds, we believe that one type of approach does not work for everyone.  We believe that when parents have specific  information about their baby, they know what works best for their own child.

Our goal is to improve the health, safety, and well-being of babies discharged from the NICU and their families by providing them with health support services (education, support, and coordination of care)  and providing educational opportunities for those who care for them.
