This allows them to be better informed, to participate and to be involved in the care of the newborn in a continuous learning process together with the professionals of the unit, feeling with it all safer and checking and sharing the evolution of the child in his first days of life.

All this allows this tool to complement the information and health care offered in the Neonatal ICU and improve the quality of care perceived by parents from the human point of view.
