JOIN NOWDONATE

My NICU Network is proud to announce the publication of a paper written demonstrating the efficacy of the course we co-created to educate NICU staff on how to provide psychosocial support to NICU parents.  The paper has been published online in the journal Advances in Neonatal Care. 

Who Are We?

NICU Parent Network is a network of organizations offering support to families of premature infants. We are the only professional association for NICU Parent Leaders in the United States. NPN provides a platform for NICU Parent Leaders to come together as a collective voice representing the needs and best interests of NICU families in all facets of healthcare policy, care guidelines, advocacy, education & family support.

Our Mission is to Provide Exceptional Experiences, a Vibrant Community, Practical & Compelling Content, and Essential Tools That Will Make You and Your Organization More Successful

ADVOCACY

Our organizations are dedicated to representing the needs and best interests of NICU families in all facets of healthcare policy, care guidelines, advocacy, education, and family support.

CULTIVATING LEADERS

NPN represents leaders who have turned NICU experiences into ways to touch the lives of NICU families. Offers a way to network with parent leaders, share best practices, mentoring opportunities, & meaningful relationship building.

REPRESENTATION

By collaborating and engaging with stakeholders in the Maternal Infant Health community, NPN members are committed to ensuring our most fragile population has every opportunity to thrive.

EDUCATION

NICU Parent Network has partnered with Patient+Family Care and the National Perinatal Association to develop a superior quality NICU Staff Education course.

OUR IMPACT

The voice of the NPN is often sought out for participation in surveys & focus groups that provide patient experience guidance. 

Family Integrated Care

is an approach to care in the NICU that fully involves the parents in all aspects of the baby’s care. The NPN believes this approach to the care of the infant and family should extend to all guidelines, research, policy, advocacy, education, and support where nothing is created for infants and their families without an equal partnership with NICU Parent Leaders.
