Parenting Time

Mother and BabyMercy encourages parents of NICU babies to participate in caring for the baby as much as possible. We encourage you to be at the bedside at any time during the day or night. We know you are as important to your baby as he or she is to you.

The only time you will not be allowed in the unit is if there is a special procedure being done in the nursery. At this time, we may ask you to step out briefly.
