UNU SI UNU @ START!
Join the UNU SI UNU Team at Bucharest Half Marathon on 11-12 May 2019! Help parents to be welcomed in NICU close to their preemie baby!
Parent and supporters of UNU SI UNU Association go hand in hand in race and relay to help revolutioning the way premature babies are cared for in neonatology department, through LITTLE HUMAN IN THERAPY Project.
What is LITTLE HUMAN IN THERAPY?
Premature new-born and sick – long hospitalized babies need their parents close! The 2-3 months spent in hospital can leave deep traces in the relationship between parent and child. Many studies show that the newborn’s neurological development is greatly improved when parents actively participate in the care of their baby. The risk of disability decreases; increases the quality of life and the degree of autonomy that the future adult can acquire. Involvement of parents reduces the risk of abandonment, and the trauma of mother-child separation decreases in intensity. The Family Centred Care concept is widely spread throughout the world. Neonatology specialists and scientific evidence support the shift from traditional care of the newborn to that of the family as a whole. After the two hospitals where we supported the F.I.N.E. training for 120 medical staff in 2018 (Family and Infant Neurodevelopment Care Education), two others follow in 2019 – Bucharest Filantropia and Constanţa Maternity.
The LITTLE HUMAN IN THE THERAPY 2019 project means specialized training for 100 health care professionals in the neonatology department and 1,000 premature babies annually, cared for by their parents in intensive care. We raise funds to bring UK trainers and to equip the departments with the materials needed to implement Family Centred Care.
Help us do fine tuning in the neonatology department, change the mentality, practice and destiny of little survivors on 11-12 May 2019 at Bucharest Half Marathon.
