This new program is geared to families of preterm infants and serves as a support network following discharge as families transition from the NICU to their first months at home. These special families face unique challenges that full-term babies may not face. Families of preterm infants tend to be more vulnerable to increased anxiety, marriage breakdown, parental guilt, and parenting stress following time in the NICU.
