NICU Support

You don't have to do it all alone. Our NICU support services includes:

  • A NICU parent liaison program, which enables former NICU parents to provide support to current parents.
  • A volunteer parent advisory group to help us with policy making in the NICU.
  • NICU social workers and a March of Dimes Family Support Specialist to provide resources and opportunities for families who are going through similar situations to meet and support one another.

For more information, call Social Services at 225-924-8456.

Space Just For Parents

We consider parents a critical part of our care team. Since parents often spend countless hours with us, we designed the NICU Parent Classroom and NICU Parent Lounge especially for them. These areas allow us to educate parents on their infant’s individual care needs and provide a private space for parents to gather.
