Welcome to the BabyCam Program

The BabyCam program promotes bonding for your family when you are not able to visit your baby in the nursery. A high-definition camera is placed at your baby's bedside so that you are able to view your child in real time from any computer. It can be a very scary time when you have a baby in intensive care, and we hope this camera will alleviate some of these fears.

Since you will be able to see your baby in real time, you can call back to the nursery and ask your nurse specific questions about the baby regarding the different equipment, wires and tubes that may be connected to your baby. You, as the parent, are a very important part of this project, and we want your baby to get well and go home as quickly as possible. Please let us know if you have any questions or comments.
