All expectant parents hope that their babies will be healthy. Yet sometimes problems arise that require a newborn to be admitted to the NICU for treatment. Being born prematurely, having a difficult delivery or antenatal concerns are all reasons a baby may be admitted to the NICU.
It is always stressful when a baby is unexpectedly admitted to the NICU. The length of a baby’s stay on the NICU varies depending on each individual baby’s needs. We aim to support the family throughout their baby’s stay and encourage parents to become involved in their baby’s care. The doctors, nurses, and other caregivers in the unit will do their best to provide emotional support for you while caring for your infant’s medical needs.
