Caring for baby in the neonatal unit

There are many ways you can be involved in caring for your baby while they are in the neonatal unit. These vary from comforting your baby to taking part in care-giving activities. Your baby’s nurse will guide and prepare you for these opportunities. It is important that you are ready to be involved in your baby’s care.
