Abstract

When newborns and their families are separated due to neonatal transport, it's critical to support families to ensure emotional and physical well-being of both babies and parents. Care providers at both sending and receiving facilities play an equally important role in providing education, information and support to families separated from newborns. A family-centered care approach in neonatal transport is truly a multidisciplinary, multiunit and multisystem approach.
