The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU):
The birth of a baby is a wonderful and very complex process. Many physical and emotional changes occur for both mother and baby.
A baby must make many physical adjustments to life outside the mother's body. Leaving the uterus means that a baby can no longer depend on the mother's blood supply and placenta for important body functions. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Uttara Crescent Hospital administers specialized care for premature and sick newborn babies. Working with the most advanced technology, a team of specially trained medical experts and nurses is on hand to provide babies in need with intensive care to the highest standards of care and safety 24 hours a day.
