NICU Follow-Up Programs

Neonatal Care Does Not End When Babies Leave Our NICU.

NICU Follow-up Programs

We know that you are the most important person in your NICU graduate’s life, and that you will have the greatest impact on your baby’s development. The NICU Follow-up Program cares about how you and your baby grow together. 

After going home from the NICU, your baby is at high risk for developmental problems and we believe that he/she deserves the best possible follow-up program. When we identify developmental needs as early as possible, we can provide the services and family support needed to make a lasting difference.

Our team includes medical and developmental specialists who work with your pediatrician and other community providers. We carefully evaluate your baby and family’s needs at regular intervals in the first three years using the newest and best tools available.

Together, we can make the journey toward your child’s best developmental outcome.

Sounds of Love Music Therapy

Sounds of Love in Early Childhood is a research-based music therapy class, led by certified music therapists, to aid your baby’s growth and development.

During music and play activities, parents learn new ways to help their babies grow. For families of NICU babies, it’s especially important that parents and babies have a chance to “catch up” on early building blocks of development. Classes are tailored to meet each child’s developmental needs.
