NICU Kangaroo Chair - $2,000.00
The NICU at Children's - St. Paul was the very first unit in the country to have a mother hold her baby skin-to-skin as part of bonding therapy. Now, we need donor support to make more chairs available to more mothers and preemies in St. Paul and Minneapolis.
The Kangaroo Chair was designed to support this kind of close contact, which helps to produce a natural bonding between a mother and her premature newborn. Its wide back provides an absolute sense of safety and comfort, and the chair is a favorite in the NICU for use by new mothers and their tiny babies.
