Title:
Parents as partners in care: Lessons from the Baby Friendly Initiative in Exeter
Authors:
Read, Karen; Rattenbury, Louise
Abstract:
Neonatal care has changed beyond recognition in the past few decades with advances in technology meaning smaller and sicker babies are surviving more than ever before. Families can sometimes feel they are left watching on from the side lines, not knowing what their role is in the situation. Supporting parents to be partners in care can make a difference by supporting parents to be present with their baby, to make and to be involved in decisions regarding the care of their baby and to improve the close and loving relationships that are fractured when a baby is requiring neonatal care. The Baby Friendly Initiative standards for neonatal units are one way of changing the culture and philosophy of neonatal units in the United Kingdom and can make a real difference to families.
