Family Support Resources Your NICU Baby Neonatal Video and Resource Library, by The Wellness Network, offers guideline-compliant educational resources to help parents and extended family members understand procedures, protocols, medical conditions, and infant care so they can better adapt to baby’s NICU stay and prepare for taking care of baby once they head home. The focus of this resource is to help families successfully navigate the NICU experience and transition home.
