The arrival of a new baby is an amazing time for a family. For some whose babies need to be admitted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), those first days or weeks can be difficult. The separation from their infant can be hard for any mother or family.
At Ochsner, we are committed to being a family centered care facility and understand parents are an important part of the care giving team. We offer a free webcam service so families with Internet access can watch the new baby from any computer or mobile device.
Webcams do not take the place of in person visits and the hands-on-care you provide but it is a way to stay connected with your baby. It is also a way for those that are too young or too far away to see the newest member of your family.
These web cams can also be used during births to connect family members that are separated by long distances.
