 IPads Help Moms Stay Bonded With Babies in NICU

Mothers of the newborn children at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles who have been placed in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) due to various issues can now remain in contact with their babies thanks to iPads.

Newborns are often placed in NICU due to a number of reasons, ranging from premature birth or post birth complications that sometimes require surgeries. However during the period when they are placed in NICU, the mothers are unable to bond with their babies.

Now parents at Cedars can take advantage of 'BabyTime', during which they can see their babies and also interact with doctors, who are taking care of their baby, through video chat.

"BabyTime will help bridge communication with the family and the baby's medical team and is an excellent use of technology to help new mothers bond with their babies, even when they cannot be physically at their babies' bedside", the chair of the Cedars-Sinai Department of Pediatrics, Charles F. Simmons Jr, said.
