The Connections Program for High-Risk Infants and Families made this guide to help parents while they are in the NICU with their baby. We talked to other NICU parents about what kind of help they needed during this time and what activities might have helped them to feel more more confident as a parent, and included them in this guide.
Note: You may feel all, some, or none of the following throughout your NICU stay as no two journeys are the same.
Both parents play a special and equally important role in helping their baby grow and develop. Being involved in your baby's care and activities is important for their growth and development.
