    NICU Family Support

    The NICU Family Support® program offers information and comfort to families during the NICU hospitalization of their newborn, during the transition home, and in the event of a newborn death. It addresses the needs of parents, siblings, grandparents and the extended family throughout the hospitalization, during the transition home and in the event of a newborn death. NICU Family Support also includes a professional development component that provides NICU staff with educational opportunities to help them sensitively support families on a daily basis. It also provides professional education for NICU staff; and promotes neonatal family centered care in NICUs. Family members also can connect with other families who share the NICU experience by accessing http://www.shareyourstory.org.   

    There are a few things that make the program unique. First is Desiree Vargas, NICU Family Support Specialist.  She is a part-time March of Dimes employee that offices at St. Rose's NICU.  She has a background in Marriage and Family Therapy and specialization in working with trauma and grief.

    There is also a volunteer parent-professional action committee that guides program selection, development, and implementation. Having a base of March of Dimes volunteers who provide parent-to-parent support to families in the NICU setting. As well as sensitive and engaging educational materials that introduce parents to the staff, equipment, procedures and conditions that they may encounter in the NICU.

    With this new support to the St. Rose Siena NICU, we look forward to building a wonderful program supporting families for many years to come!
