15 million babies worldwide are born prematurely. Not all of those babies require neonatal intensive care support, but many do. And many more babies require a stay in the NICU for life saving treatment due to delivery complications, birth defects, disorders or other diseases. So the sad reality is there are countless families that find themselves on a NICU journey.
Simultaneously, it is estimated that 2.5 billion people own smartphones in this world. What does that have to do with NICU families?
