Brian Krupa Encourages Parents of Premature Babies to Become Involved in Hospital Care
Date:3/19/2013

Hilton Head, South Carolina (PRWEB) March 19, 2013

Brian Krupa is the father of two twin boys who were born three months premature. As such, he has accumulated insight that he believes will help other parents who are facing this experience. A regular speaker at events in support of the work of healthcare professionals and other organizations that assist families in raising premature babies, including the Ronald McDonald House, Krupa has an interest in sharing information that will allow parents to more successfully overcome the challenges that a premature birth can present. Here, Krupa responds to an article by the Huffington Post that highlights the benefits of parent care in the hospital setting.

The article focuses on a parent care program at Mount Sinai Hospital. Called the Family Integrated Care Program, this initiative provides parents of premature infants with the opportunity to provide most of the care their children need. Nurses are on hand to educate new parents regarding the best ways to provide for premature infants. The success of the program—and its goals—are supported by a study published by BMC Pregnancy and Childbirth, according to the article. The study found: "After adjusting for maternal age, birth weight, and health status scores, the rate of change in weight gain was higher in premature babies whose parents were part of the [Family Integrated Care] program compared to those whose parents weren't in the program."

The benefits that were uncovered by the study with regard to such programs are many; however, Brian Krupa adds to the ideas presented in the article by explaining the fact that parent care is essential in helping birth parents feel like mothers and fathers.

Having a premature baby is one of the most helpless feelings in the world," comments Krupa. "I remember wondering how I was going to care for these two little children, how I was going to learn what I needed to in order to protect and provide for them. Having a full-term baby is scary in and of itself, as a sense of extreme responsibility kicks in as soon as that baby is born. Now imagine the feeling that accompanies the birth of a baby that needs the help of medical devices and healthcare services just to keep breathing and growing. The work that the Family Integrated Care Program is doing is invaluable in that it is teaching parents how to care for their premature children—allowing them to be parents from the beginning, instead of forcing them to stand aside and wait until their children are strong enough to be put into their care."
