Video: Tupelo Women’s Hospital at NMMC Honors Special Moms
TUPELO, Miss. (WCBI) — A group of mothers were honored today at an area hospital. The Women’s Hospital in Tupelo held a lunch for moms whose babies are in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, or NICU. Staffers at the NMMC hospital wanted to do something special for those mothers whose babies are in the NICU this Mother’s Day weekend.
NICU Nurse, Christy Whitney said, “When any baby is in the intensive care unit, that separation is so strong and you especially feel it around holidays and Mother’s Day of all days is when you want to cuddle, hold and love on your baby so it makes it even more difficult when babies are here with us instead of home where they’re supposed to be with their mom.”
There are 16 babies in the NICU at Tupelo’s Women’s Hospital
