The first few days in the NICU are absolutely critical for your baby, and also for you.  

The first few days will seem like they go on for ever, and you will struggle to process everything that is happening.  You will feel like your whole world has stopped, and all your attention is now purely focused on your new little addition.

There are so many things to get your head around now that you are a NICU Dad, and you will feel so confused, scared, helpless, sad and anxious.

All of these feelings and emotions are completely normal, as the situation you now find yourself in is not 'normal'.

This episode will discuss what worked for me, and what i should have done differently to help me navigate the first few days.
