Self-care. So important for the mental, emotional and physical wellbeing of parents and babies and also the first thing to set aside.
Studies identify linkages between NICU parent stress levels and milk-supply, the health of the baby, development of the parent-child bond and levels of post-traumatic stress following discharge from the NICU.
Currently on hold, we look forward to regular wellbeing events where our partners, Life Ready Physio, provide massages and physio advice. Meditation, baby massage and cuppa and a chat also feature.
All current and recent NICU parents are entitled to access the wellbeing events.
