Medical social work

The medical social worker/ parent counsellor can help and support you in seeking solutions to problems related to the hospitalisation of your child.

Admission of a baby to the Neonatology unit is always accompanied by a range of challenges. A premature birth is often a dramatic experience in the lives of parents. The social worker can help you find the help and support that suits your needs, both at this point in time and in the future. The social worker is a member of the team responsible for treating and caring for your baby and works in close collaboration with the doctors and nurses. An appointment with social work can be made via the nursing staff or by calling phone number 071 529 9145.
