Parent-to-Parent Support

Project Description

ICU baby recognizes that the time a family spends in the NICU visiting their baby can be lonely, confusing and scary, at times. ICU baby has a team of volunteers that are pre-screened by the Hospital to enter the Unit to provide parent-to-parent support.

Most of the volunteers have had a baby in the NICU themselves or have experience in a NICU and can personally empathize with what the NICU parent is going through. The ICU baby team listens, offers comfort and can direct the NICU parent to resources in the hospital or community that might benefit them during their NICU stay.
