Keeping Watch Over Little Ones

Thanks to a grateful family, you still can see your baby in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) even when you can’t be there in person. In May 2014, we became the first children’s hospital in North Carolina to use NICView—a secure webcam system that allows family members to keep watch over their infant.

Leigh Anne Lindsay, a mother of twins, was among the first to use the new cameras. Following delivery, her son William was able to return home, but Madison, her daughter, had to stay in the NICU for several months. Leigh Anne says the cameras made a huge difference for her entire family. “When my husband was in Las Vegas for work and my dad was in China, they both could watch her being fed or rocking in her swing,” she says. “As a mom, it meant a lot to have that peace of mind … to know that she was taken care of even when I couldn’t be there.”
