Study: NICU cameras could help ease anxious parents
Having a baby in the NICU can be an emotional rollercoaster for new parents.
New research at Cleveland Clinic shows placing a live webcam in the NICU may allow for remote bonding and ease worry.
A NICU stay can range from days to months, making it hard for parents to visit their newborn every day.
The study found having a virtual connection to their baby helped parents, especially those experiencing stress.
Next steps include exploring whether use of NICU webcams increases breast milk production.
