Beads of Courage
Dedicated to Healing and Supporting Your Newborn
Beads of Courage is a special program that honors the milestones achieved during a patient’s unique journey. The Gwinnett Women’s Pavilion’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) is proud to have been the first hospital to offer this therapeutic program to preemie families.
All babies born prior to 34 weeks gestation are given a string and beads to spell their first name. Then, for every test or treatment a newborn receives in the NICU, he or she receives an additional bead. These babies and families will have a special strand of beads that is specific to their care and represents their courageous journey in our NICU.
This program was instituted by and continues to be sponsored by the physicians and nurse practitioners of Gwinnett Neonatology, PC.
