Developmental family-centred care
I firmly believe that most parents are prepared and able to look after their sick or premature child. I am a great supporter of family-centred care aimed at development: the individual needs of the child and the parents are in the centre here. The care is aimed at reducing stress and enhancing comfort. The relationship between parents and child is promoted and supported.
A serious premature birth, a sick baby, long admission to Intensive Care have an enormous impact on the parents. Mosty we see total disorganization, sleepless nights, grief, uncertainty and fear often invisible to the outside world. This makes the parents vulnerable. During my training I will teach you how to support the parents and the child with advice and assistance. How to give parents confidence in their own abilities, and how to give them the feeling that they have control over the care of their child again.
