Cuddle Therapy

  1. Hey Everyone! I am a student nurse and heard about Cuddle Therapy through a friend. I love the sound of the volunteering to care for NICU infants but how do I pursue a position like that?

    Our "Cuddlers" come through our volunteer department. Any large hospital should have a volunteer program. Not every volunteer can come into the NICU. Our "Cuddlers" go through special training done by the hospital before they are allowed to hold a NICU baby. They don't need the training to hold babies in the rest of the hospital.

    We do not have this at our hospital, but it would come in handy sometimes.
