You and your baby’s wellness are important to us, therefore we encourage you to participate in our HUG (Helping You Grasp) day, run every Thursday for our parents. Run by a multidisciplinary team from the NICU, the support group covers topics such as breastfeeding, positioning and handling, techniques to bond with your baby and information to help you cope with your time with us and provide additional support with discharge preparation. Attending this weekly session will give you the opportunity to meet other parents in the same situation as yourself and will offer you the opportunity to ask more questions about how to care for your baby.

For more information about our HUG days, please speak to your bedside/primary nurse or to the lactation nurse.
