about

Before you were born, I imagined touching you, holding you, kissing you.

You were born early, and right then—at that very moment—I wanted
to touch you,
to hold you,
to kiss you.
But I learned that both of us needed to wait.
So as we wait, here''s what I''ll try.


The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) isn''t what you expected and neither are the doctors, nurses, and machines that are now part of your baby''s life.

But look around. Everything you see—from the doctors and nurses to the machines that beep and hum—is there to help your child. These moments are yours to share and experience. Reading and talking to your baby about where you are and what you see will help your family be together and connect, and may even make the NICU feel a little less overwhelming.

The Moment You Were Bornis a gentle and soothing story for you and your baby as you share moments in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Includes a "Note to Parents and Caregivers" with more ideas about sharing the NICU experience and staying close to your baby.
