NICU 101 (2023)


with MMC Childbirth Education

Do you anticipate that your baby may be born early or with a medical condition which could result in a stay in the NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit)? Please join us for a tour of the NICU and have the chance to talk with NICU nurses. You will learn about common medical issues and NICU equipment, how your baby will be cared for, what parents can do to care for their baby in the NICU and hospital policies. This class is offered in collaboration with our March of Dimes NICU Family Support Program.
