Infant-Driven Education

As neonatal caregivers, we are privileged to care for the most fragile infants and families in the world during the most vulnerable time of their lives.

Whether a neonatal novice or expert, we have a tremendous responsibility to continue learning, growing, and developing our skills to ultimately impact the lives of those entrusted in our care. My passion for this led me to create Infant-Driven Education that not only expands the knowledge, skill and expertise of healthcare providers, but also improves the safety, efficiency, and consistency of neonatal care practices.~ Kara Ann Waitzman, OTR/L, CNT, NTMTC

Infant-Driven Educational DVDs

We offer Infant-Driven Educational DVDs on Skin-to-Skin Holding, Swaddled Bathing, and Neonatal Massage for both healthcare providers and parents. Most nurseries practice these caregiving activities, but with inconsistency in frequency and implementation causing discontent with parents and other healthcare providers. These DVDs are designed to improve the safety, efficiency, and consistency of these practices in the NICU or SCN.  They can be purchased as DVDs or licensed to put on your hospital intranet system for 24/7 viewing.
