Project NICU 

The NICU Helping Hands Foundation, in conjunction with Baylor All Saints Medical Center's Andrews Women's Hospital, offers Project NICU, a family support program within the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

The objective of Project NICU is to expand the support services and level of education provided to parents and other family members who are affected by the hospitalization of a newborn in the NICU.

The NICU Helping Hands Foundation will provide customized family support components through Project NICU which include:

  • Parent Support: Addresses emotional needs of all families with babies in the NICU through peer support groups and one-on-one support. 
  • Parent Education: Assists parents in becoming informed participants in their child's care while in the NICU through education and resource materials. 
  • Sibling Support: Provides brothers and sisters of NICU babies educational opportunities and emotional support through age appropriate activities.
  • From Hospital to Home: Helps NICU families prepare for their baby's homecoming by organizing information discussions related to discharge.
  • Memory Archiving: Assists NICU families in documenting their experience by providing opportunities for photography, scrapbooking, and online archiving. 
  • Bereavement: Supports NICU families who experience the loss of their newborn.
  • Antepartum Support: Supports women who are hospitalized due to high-risk pregnancy.
  • Transport Support: Supports NICU families who experience the transfer of their newborn to a different hospital.
