Alayne Gatto shares a brief moment of what life is like in the NICU. It is a stressor to a new mom regardless if that is her first baby or her second, or third to be admitted to the hospital preterm and have a baby born early and whisked away to the neonatal intensive care unit.
Many studies have been done to show that the stress involved in the parents during that time has caused depression, physical illness with high blood pressure, anxiety, and more.
The Gift of Life strives to be there for these parents through support from mentors that have been in that situation before. They support the families, rejoice, and celebrate the moments with them. During a crisis, they are there to bring that needed comfort to get them through that difficult time.
