Help Support Families in the NICU
What if the hardest day of your life was also your first? This is true for the thousands of babies every day who are born too soon or very sick. In newborn intensive care unit (NICUs) across the country, they struggle to survive.
Having their baby hospitalized in the NICU can be frightening, confusing and overwhelming for parents. When doctors and nurses are focused on their little patients, March of Dimes NICU Family Support® is there for their families.
The program emphasizes family-centered care and addresses the needs of parents, siblings, grandparents and the extended family. We are there during a baby’s stay in the hospital, during the transition home, and in the event of a newborn death.
Babies sometimes have to fight for their lives. But, with your help, we can offer comfort and information to families in crisis.
