Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome is the diagnosis given to infants that are withdrawing from opiates due to exposure prenatally. Neonatal withdrawal can take up to 8 weeks. Hushabye Nursery provides a therapeutic and inviting environment of short-term medical care to infants suffering from Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS) and their families. They offer non-judgmental support, education and counseling to families in a cost-effective manner.
These babies will be stabilized in the hospital. Once they are stable, they will be transferred to Hushabye Nursery to continue their withdrawal journey. Hushabye Nursery will specialize in NAS providing a more appropriate environment for these babies and their families. NAS babies need a quiet, calm environment; the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is high-paced and noisy. Hushabye Nursery will be the haven needed to help these babies withdraw.
