The birth of a baby produces excitement, joy and a dash of worry. Parents often ask themselves whether they will be able to care for their baby and understand their baby's needs.
Parents of babies admitted to the Newborn/Infant Intensive Care Unit (N/IICU) have even more questions as they try to understand what their baby will face in the unit and how they can participate in their baby's care.
We offer these information sheets on common topics of interest as a resource for you. Of course, you can always ask the members of your baby's healthcare team any questions you have at any time!
