NICU Scrapbook Support Group
Come and join us for an afternoon or evening of scrapbooking! Bring all those pictures you have taken of your precious baby and put them into an 8x8 scrapbook. There is no cost to parents, and all supplies are provided. Sessions are weekly, 3-4 hours in length. Come and meet other parents that have a baby in the NICU. All sessions are run by an Edward NICU RN. Dates and times are listed next to the scrub sink. Contact Joan Smyth, RN at x73234 for more information, or ask your baby's nurse about times and location.
This informal support group is designed for new first-time parents and their newborns (0-6 months) to get together and share information, concerns, and ideas. An Edward Hospital nurse and special guest speakers will also attend meetings. This group meets every Wednesday from 10:00-11:30 a.m. Bring your baby! No registration necessary. Call (630) 527-3957 or go to our webpage at www.edward.org/CradleTalk for more information.
