NICU Family Support

Our NICU Family Support Programs provide emotional support, educational resources, and caring connections to families in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Cone Health Women's Hospital as well as infants with special needs that are being cared for in Central Nursery.
staff members (including one who is bilingual) served
in 2015-2016.

Collaboration with NICU staff is important to making sure every family's needs are met.
In 2016 we partnered with NICU staff in our first "Skin to Skin" challenge. An evidenced based practice to promote bonding, the challenge was a great success.
