In the face of this growing predicament, Miracle Babies provides beneficial support to San Diego families, enabling them to spend more time in the NICU. The positive impacts are innumerable and indelible. According to a 2014 study in Biological Psychiatry, the benefit that premature infants gain from skin-to-skin contact with their mothers is measurable even 10 years after their birth.
Moms who spend time in the NICU are more likely to breastfeed, a practice with well-documented and enduring advantages. Even a parents voice or scent can impact a baby in a positive way. Together, our programs can reduce babies recovery time, save hospitalization costs and improve long-term health outcomes.
