Support Group for parents of new-born babies in NICU
Lucia Ramona Vasilache (volunteer psychotherapist for “Unu si Unu” Association)
Romania suffers from psychological lack of support. This field is constantly ignored, and the psychical health of mothers who suffered a preterm birth is a marginal subject for the health care system. To counteract this, “Unu si Unu” Association, established emotional and psychological support groups in 4 hospitals from Romania. Mothers long hospitalized by the side of their premature baby, can weekly attend the group session conducted by a volunteer psychologist or psychotherapist. (Romanian Version).
