RNICU babies celebrate spring’s arrival

UAB’s smallest patients get a visit from the Easter Bunny.

Spring has sprung in the University of Alabama at Birmingham Regional Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, and the hospital’s tiniest patients are in seasonal spirit.

Babies donned spring-themed outfits to celebrate the season and welcome in the upcoming Easter holiday with their families. Some babies wore bunny- and baby-chick themed knitted caps, while others are comfortable in “Easter eggs.” 

Families with babies in the RNICU often spend holidays within the walls of UAB Hospital, so nurses and volunteers try to make each holiday as special as can be.
