Going Home Without Baby
Leaving your baby behind, in the care of others is probably one of the hardest parts of the NICU/SCN journey. Most of the staff you will meet in NICU/SCN are amazing people because it takes a special kind of person to work in that environment. They will become your family and they will take a real interest in the development of your baby.
The NICU/SCN is open to you 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Parents are only ever refused entry to NICU/SCN if they are unwell or exhibiting extreme anti-social behaviour. If you wake up at 2am and just have to see your baby you can do that. You can also call at any time and speak to the nurse caring for your baby to find out how baby is doing.
