We believe in family-integrated care that is developmentally appropriate and supportive.
We believe that all NICU parents and babies deserve access to the individualized support and resources they need to thrive well beyond leaving the hospital.
And we believe that NICU parents are the most important part of their baby’s care team.
To support these beliefs, NPN has developed the NICU Baby’s Bill of Rights that seeks to inform and empower clinicians to encourage and facilitate bonding between NICU parents and their babies.
We believe that strengthening the parent-baby bond and family functioning in the NICU is the “next big frontier” in improving infant outcomes and that supporting NICU parents is equally important to providing medical care to their baby. Created by professionals and experts by experience with quotes from over 100 NICU graduate parents, “Caring for Babies and Their Families: Providing Psychosocial Support in the NICU,” is a 7-module online continuing education series. CEUs are available.
Search the NICU Parent Network member directory to find support services and resources for your families. Many organizations have virtual offerings suitable for any NICU family no matter their location
