NICU parent guide

We welcome you to Hemby Children’s Hospital’s NICU

Congratulations on the birth of your baby. We created this guide to help you navigate when a child you care about is in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) at Novant Health Hemby Children’s Hospital, a department of Novant Health Presbyterian Medical Center. Our hope is that this information and the advice of your caregivers will give you encouragement and support as you work with our medical team to help your child grow and develop.

Families are essential to the health and well-being of infants in Hemby’s NICU. Our goal is to send you home well-educated, confident and ready to look after the needs of your child. We encourage you to be present, interact and participate in decision-making as we establish a treatment plan for your child.
