NICU @ VUmc happy with new chairs and covers!

Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to buy three comfortable lounge chairs and 35 sound- and light-reducing incubator covers for the NICU at the VUmc. All in beautiful Sophie Foundation blue.

It was a proud moment to see the newly delivered chairs, who will enable parents of premature babies to spend hours and hours of comfortable skin-on-skin time with their little ones. Time that is so important for the well-being of the babies – and also the parents.

When Sophie was in an incubator, we could witness the amazing calming effect it had on her vital statistics when one of us even just put our hand (or rather 2-3 fingers) on her skin – we could literally see the numbers improving on the monitors above her little bed in minutes.

In addition, your donations for the VUmc “Project UNIEK” have enabled the department to buy dinner cheques for parents who need a little break from the NICU, and various items for the “remembrance boxes” they make for families of babies who pass away – suc h as books for the brothers and sisters of babies who have unfortunately passed away.
