Bridging the
gaps in NICU parent education.


It's time to support NICU parents as partners and create meaningful bedside experiences.

The question is...are you equipped with the training, support, mindset, and confidence to help craft supportive experiences for your NICU babies and their families in every way? And what happens when you're overwhelmed, parent visitation is low, bedside communication is inconsistent, and you just don't know how to help NICU families care for their baby in the ways that truly matter.

NICU resources designed to create confident NICU clinicians while crafting positive, family-integrated NICU experiences.

Guess who has the greatest influence on a baby in the NICU and their family? It's YOU!

Are you an OT, PT, or SLP looking for CE, mentorship, and training in the field of NICU therapy? We bring a proven approach to this advanced area of practice. Join our entry-level training program today.

So, we've taken evidence-based data and feedback from hundreds of families to give you the tools needed to create positive, family-integrated, and neuro-supportive experiences at the NICU bedside, without the overwhelm.

"Really, thank you so much for giving me the tools to have a better and healthier NICU experience. I feel so much more prepared to be a part of his experience instead of just feeling helpless and watching from a distance.”

"As a NICU therapist for a few years, this is what we need. I have been a ‘self-trained therapist’ since I was the only one in my unit. Now I’m training a PT and SLP. We are finally growing! THANK YOU!"
