Our departments also include a dedicated Neonatology and Pediatrics Psychology Care Unit that highlights the human approach that we embrace at ASSAMEH Birth and Beyond, integrating a psychological dimension into our institution.

Whether newborns dealing with abandonment, premature babies, mothers handling separation, or children dealing with the stress of being in a hospital, our team offers the emotional support and guidance needed. In addition to our health care staff, we know the job can take a toll on their emotional state and want to ensure they have the right platform to share their stories.

Our team also includes a group of volunteers who run the Cuddles Volunteer Program. This program is built around the Kangaroo Care Method (KC) and is based on the fact that babies who receive skin to skin contact and cuddles heal faster. Babies who are cuddled often demonstrate greater growth, physiologic stability and have shorter hospital stays than babies who have not been cuddled.
