5 core features for all NICU families
NICU2HOME consists of five core features - Home, Update, Education, Journey, and Community - all of which were requested by NICU graduate parents and health care providers.
Home offers daily customized education content based on infants’ current age and parents' preferences. This homepage also functions as a private social media-like platform allowing parents to invite and connect with family and friends.
The Education Center provides a wide range of useful content for parents of even the youngest premature babies. Educational content covers developmentally appropriate topics throughout the NICU journey. While many parents feel a sense of uncertainty during the NICU stay and transition home, the Education Center fosters feelings of self-efficacy, competence and emotional support.
Nurturing a premature baby can be tough, but it can also be incredibly rewarding. This feature aims to provide NICU families a moderated platform from which they can view curated posts and comment on their own NICU journey with the community.
