Supporting Parents of Premature Babies in the NICU
Evidence-based mobile app
Influenced by NICU parents and care teams
Being in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) can be hard for parents–whether they knew their baby was coming to the NICU or if it came as a total surprise. We asked NICU parents what they needed to know in order to care for their baby from NICU admission until going home. Then we built NICU2HOME based on what parents truly wanted. This evidence-based smartphone app is designed to help parents get oriented to their new reality, learn about their baby, track their NICU journey, and share this journey with family and friends. Welcome to NICU2HOME.
