Caring for newborn babies – especially ones suffering illnesses, birth defects or heart problems – requires specialist training and skills. Babies can’t communicate, of course. It is up to neonatal nurses to decipher what newborn infants need, how to best nurse them to health, and provide the love and touch to keep them healthy and happy. Without these nurses, many young babies would sadly not make a full recovery or survive without their specialized care. On September 15th, we recognize the efforts of neonatal nurses on National Neonatal Nures Day.
