Who We Are

Who We Are

ICU baby is a non-profit organization
that supports families with a baby(s) in the NICU.

 

Each year, thousands of newborn babies in South Florida are admitted to a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) because of premature birth or illness.

Most of these families never imagined they would spend time in a NICU.

Some of these families never imagined they would not take their baby home.

The experience for all of these NICU families is traumatic.

 

ICU baby's Beliefs

  • Babies should not be alone…No baby should go unvisited by his family because of financial, physical or psychological barriers.
  • Babies should not be alone…The NICU should be a family centered, nurturing environment that provides for the particular needs of the whole family.
  • Babies should not be alone…Every family with a baby receiving palliative care in the NICU should have a private room and timely access to their baby with limited interruption before the baby passes.
