Jane Cizin, also a registered nurse in the NICU, said that all babies are fine despite being born prematurelybetween weeks 26 and 30 of gestation.
“Premature babies have their challenges, but they are all doing well. They breathe on their own and receive some oxygen. Most are in the feeding tube because they are so small, but they are doing well, they are really resilient,” Cizin said last week. “I think everyone wants to be happy and having these beautiful babies in the world makes you happy. They really are so cute and have their own little personalities.”
“It’s fantastic to be a NICU nurse and take care of all these babies; It is very gratifying to go to work and see them. Nurses, physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, respiratory team, and NICU employees work very well together, and really We have a great team here.” continuous.
