NICU Parent’s Bill of Rights

The NICU Parent’s Bill of Rights is a list of ten essential rights that all NICU parents should expect during their child’s NICU stay. This collaborative project was developed to help address and break down barriers that often prevent NICU parents from bonding with their baby and playing an active role in their daily care. In order to care for a medically fragile infant after the NICU, parents must feel empowered, competent and capable of being their baby’s advocate and caregiver. Therefore, they must be encouraged and supported throughout their baby’s NICU journey.
