Renee Parsons visits Hushabye Nursery

April 7, 2022

At Hushabye Nursery we focus on families whose babies are born with Neonatal Abstinence Syndrome.  Experiencing the struggles of babies exposed to opioids at birth, as well as the numerous challenges moms face, is heartbreaking. Hushabye Nursery is committed to supporting families in need. As a result, babies are brought through detox in the most compassionate and knowledgeable way possible: dim lighting, calm surroundings, and endless cuddling and rocking.  Moms, dads, or any other caregivers who remain with their babies throughout the recovery process are also provided with services, both before birth and during the recovery process.

In honor of March’s Women’s History Month, Renee Parsons visited Hushabye Nursery and spoke with Executive Director and Co-Founder, Tara Sundem. Learn more about Renee’s visit by visiting her blog at The Renee Parsons Website. Thank you, Renee Parson and The Bob and Renee Parson’s Foundation for all that you do for our community.

Most babies with NAS are treated in the neonatal intensive care unit. NICU teams do amazing work, and countless families owe their children’s lives to those dedicated nurses and doctors. But NICUs are not set up to treat babies with NAS. Hushabye Nursery in Phoenix is. NAS is what they treat. It’s all they treat. 24/7.

Phoenix nursery provides model solution for newborns exposed to opioids

In central Phoenix, Hushabye Nursery is home to babies born withdrawing from addictive substances they were exposed to in the womb. They spend their first days of life in dimly lit rooms equipped with cribs, changing tables and adult-size beds so their parents, many of whom are still in recovery, can stay with them. Framed prints on the walls read: Inhale. Exhale.
