ICU baby Believes

Babies should not be alone. No baby should go unvisited by his family because of financial or emotional 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 their baby passes.
