Parent Picture-Book Reading to Infants in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit as an Intervention Supporting Parent-Infant Interaction and Later Book Reading



Opened 18 May 2013

Located in Parents Room in Newborn Care Centre at Royal Hospital for Women, Randwick

The library is still being used but we’ve also started a book donation program for families in Level 3 as they don’t really have access to the library books in terms of infection risk.  Instead, Rose and I visit with some of our favourite titles each due date so the nurses can give books to parents to read to their babies and then take home with them on their day of days.  If you’d like to donate books like this, too, please contact Jane.
