The Importance of Self-Care for NICU Parents

Having a hospitalized child can be scary and stressful for parents, especially when that child is a newborn. Between raising a family, working and coping with a hospitalized infant, self-care is often not the first thing that comes to mind for a parent.

In this episode of CHOC Radio, we speak with Karina  Ousley, a clinical social worker in CHOC’s  neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), Diana Hurtado, coordinator for the March of Dimes NICU Family Support program at CHOC, and Marla Dorsey, patient- and family-centered care coordinator, about the importance of NICU parents practicing self care.
