Introducing Guest Blogger Melis Ann: What Pregnant Moms Need to Know About Neonatal Intensive Care Units
Today I’d like to introduce our guest blogger, Melis Ann, who has written a thought-provoking and highly informative article about Neonatal Intensive Care Units and the importance of selecting the right hospital. Melis Ann is a mom and a social scientist who loves to do research to find out the how and why. Her website is http://melisann.hubpages.com
During pregnancy, there are many decisions to make. The most important decision is where to have your baby. Hospitals have different levels of qualifications to deal with life-threatening circumstances that newborn babies may face. Many infants are born premature and need help to survive in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Many other babies, including full-term babies, are unexpectedly affected by breathing difficulties, heart defects and other birth defects and need emergency care. Understanding what to look for in a hospital, the neonatal nurses, and the NICU will give expectant parents the ability to make an informed decision. See the article at the following link.
