The Hushabye Story

Our new facility, located at 3003 E. McDowell Road, Phoenix, is now complete and ready to welcome Moms and babies.

View our video and listen to our story from Hushabye Nursery’s Founder, Tara Sundem and President, Brandon Clark. The Mission is ambitious and the results are inspiring.

“Though no one can go back and make a brand-new start, anyone can start from now and make a brand-new ending.” – Carl Bard

Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome (NAS)

Newborns exposed to opioids in the womb are at risk for a condition called neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS). NAS symptoms can include painful tremors; excessive crying and irritability; and problems with sleeping, feeding, and breathing. NAS is associated with myriad risk factors that could affect the well-being and development of a newborn. NAS is responsible for profound social cost and human suffering. From 2004 to 2014, NAS prevalence increased 433%, accounting for $2.9 billion in hospitalization costs (Boston Medical Center, 2018) straining national healthcare systems.

The Covid-19 pandemic exacerbated opioid use disorder and incidences of overdose increased by approximately 30% nationwide, making Hushabye Nursery’s best practice NAS care services even more essential.

Today’s health challenges are influenced by issues well beyond the clinic walls, from the social, economic, and environmental factors that shape one’s health to the safety of our surroundings. In response to pressing community health needs, Hushabye was founded by nurse-innovators, who witnessed firsthand the challenges of newborns exposed prenatally to opioids and those families trying to care for them in the field. Family engagement and health equity are two guiding principles in all the work we do. Hushabye Nursery’s staff is committed to creating a trauma-informed residential treatment environment that fosters inclusion and empowerment. Our caregivers build trust while demonstrating empathy. We encourage the family’s involvement in the treatment of their infant by sending an empowering, non-judgmental message to parents. Hushabye’s Lived Experience peer mentor program recognizes people with recovery experience as context experts within our programming. Hushabye promotes the intrinsic dignity of our patients ensuring that all programming is relevant across race, culture, age, and gender, all while addressing barriers to equity, equality, and inclusion.
