Family support program
Since having a child in the NICU can be a difficult experience, we have partnered with the March of Dimes to provide enhanced educational information and comfort to families of premature babies and newborns with medical conditions.
The program includes free written materials and videos – available in both English and Spanish – about terminology, frequently asked questions and what to expect during discharge. The Inova Loudoun Hospital NICU is proud to be one of only three hospitals in the state to offer this program.
Annual NICU family reunion
A child born at Inova Loudoun Ladies Board Birthing Center becomes a member of our family. Each year we look forward to our annual NICU family reunion, traditionally held in October, where patients and their families are invited to return to the Birthing Center to celebrate with staff and other families.
The NICU at Inova Loudoun Hospital fosters a special sense of family
