Our Revised & Updated

NICU Baby’s Bill of Rights

We believe in family-integrated care that is developmentally appropriate and supportive.

We believe that all NICU parents and babies deserve access to the individualized support and resources they need to thrive well beyond leaving the hospital.

And we believe that NICU parents are the most important part of their baby’s care team.

To support these beliefs, NPN has developed the NICU Baby’s Bill of Rights that seeks to inform and empower clinicians to encourage and facilitate bonding between NICU parents and their babies.

We first developed a NICU Parent’s Bill of Rights in 2013 as a collaborative project to help address and break down barriers that often prevent NICU parents from bonding with their baby and playing an active role in their daily care. We encourage you to print and share a copy of the NICU Baby’s Bill of Rights with your NICU.

NICU Parent Network is committed to being mindful of the evolving needs of NICU babies and families. We have reevaluated our original NICU Parent’s Bill of Rights and concluded that these updates and revisions are better aligned with current conditions. The NICU Baby’s Bill of Rights seeks to inform and empower clinicians to encourage and facilitate bonding between NICU parents and their babies. This collaborative project hopes to help address and break down barriers that often prevent NICU parents from bonding with their baby and playing an active role in their daily care.
