NICU - Support

The Woman's Hospital of Texas provides an extensive education department. The NICU enriches the hospital's curriculum with programs designed specifically for the families of NICU babies. With each class and support group, your confidence will increase, and caring for your baby will become more comfortable.

NICU Parent Group

Parents are encouraged to attend the weekly NICU parent group. Our NICU physicians, nurses, therapists, and other professionals attend and address topics such as NICU equipment, how to understand lab results, infection control, and strategies to care for your baby in the NICU and at home. The group offers an opportunity to learn and share with other parents.

Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

  • Infant CPR training is offered to all NICU parents. For some parents, it is required before their baby goes home. To register for classes, please call our education department at 713-791-7495.

Sibling Support

  • Our child-life specialists offer one-on-one education for brothers and sisters who have a sibling in the NICU. These sessions prepare youngsters for what they will see in the NICU and help them understand why their new family member has not come home. These sessions are available upon request.
