Stories are important in neonatal care


Medical care is of-course very important for babies in neonatal care units, however talking, reading and singing to babies will comfort and soothe them, help them to relax and build bonds with their parents.

Listen to the inspirational, Dr Matta, Associate Specialist in Neonatology and Child Development, as she explores the ways that very young babies communicate with us. She also describes the impact that talking, reading and singing to babies in a hospital setting has both on the babies’¬†wellbeing in the unit and on their longer-term development.
