Smoothing the Transition Home from the NICU

We know that parents experience significant stress from their baby’s NICU stay and that by providing them with support, education, resources, and follow-up after they are discharged from the NICU can buffer some of the social-emotional stress they have experienced so that they have the knowledge, skills, and emotional health needed to support their baby’s development and long term well-being.
