Each parent’s journey in the Neonatal Intensive Unit (NICU) is different and unique. To provide hope and support to parents currently living that journey, a series of videos featuring veteran NICU parents has been developed. In these videos, parents share stories of their NICU journey, talk about what life looks like for their families afterwards, and offer advice to parents currently in the NICU.

Two videos in the series have been published:

  • Stories of Encouragement

  • From One Caregiver to Another

The Mount Sinai NICU has implemented E-Talks as a new resource. The NICU healthcare team encourages parents to take a few minutes to find comfort and support in the stories shared by veteran parents. A component in scale and spread efforts, E-Talks is part of a research study, Family Integrated Care (FICare) Plus with Mount Sinai Hospital, Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and SickKids.
