Specifically women who have newborns in the NICU unit who have moved out of the hospital, and are nearby in an out-care facility to be close to their baby. The goal is to provide Mothers with the same high-quality equipment they used at the hospital during their stay, being one less thing to worry about it, in an already stressful time.
