No parent wants to imagine that their baby will need to spend time in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). But for many families, that is a reality. Parents who have a baby in the NICU feel the gamut of emotions as they wait for the day they can take their new addition home. Whether it is a few days or a few months, this time in NICU can be both scary and rewarding. By staying positive and looking to the future, parents can find a great deal of love and friendship in those they meet in the NICU. This is also a wonderful time to heal from any medical conditions – such as a birth injury – and get to know your baby while they continue to heal and grow and thrive.
