As a neonatologist, I care for premature and sick newborn babies who have illnesses that are unique to that time period.
It’s not just a question of treating their illness, but also helping the family deal with their sick or premature baby, and getting them to become involved in their care and management.
We encourage the mothers and the fathers to be there to provide the care that they normally would be giving at home. And that includes things like skin-to-skin care where you hold the baby, comforting the baby when he or she is unhappy, talking and reading to the baby, to be there as much as they can and participate as much as they can.
