Support for NICU Families

NICU baby

I’ve worked with so many families who experience grief, trauma, and overwhelm due to their new babies needing to stay in the NICU. Whether a short admission or many months in the hospital, a NICU stay can cause tremendous amounts of stress and anxiety for the whole family. 

It’s a vulnerable and emotional time that often leaves parents feeling anxious and alone with a myriad of questions.

Graduating from the NICU can be an exciting milestone, but many times parents feel completely overwhelmed transitioning from round-the-clock care for their fragile babies to doing it all themselves at home.

I'm so thrilled to learn that neonatal/pediatric nurses & former NICU mamas themselves, Melissa Braun & Margie Kuczkowski, have created a neonatal consulting company focused on extending care to NICU families. 

NEOwell helps guide families during the hospital stay and throughout the transition to home. Such a valuable and needed resource for families!

If you or a loved one is impacted by a NICU stay, check them out.

And, as always, if you need more support navigating the mental health aspects to this journey, get in touch!
