Hawaii NICU Family Support
When a baby is born too soon or very sick and starts life in the newborn intensive care unit (NICU), the March of Dimes is there for the family. One in every 10 babies born in the United States is admitted to a NICU. Some babies spend just a couple of days, others many long months. Having a baby hospitalized in a NICU can be frightening, confusing and overwhelming. NICU Family Support offers information and comfort. We enhance family-centered care practices in partner hospitals to address the needs of families and provide professional education to NICU staff.
In Hawaii, the March of Dimes NICU Family Support program is located in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit at Kapi'olani Medical Center for Women and Children.
