NICU babies get dressed up to celebrate their very first Easter

Easter, NICU

Babies in neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) across the country are celebrating their very first Easter this year with adorable outfits and special photoshoots for their families to cherish.

Bon Secours Southside Medical Center

At Bon Secours Southside Medical Center in Petersburg, Virginia, tiny NICU patients were dressed in sweet Easter outfits that included bunnies, Easter eggs, and chicks. The babies had accessories including hats, headbands, and even a carrot to complete their looks.

“Shout out to Tara Bishop, Carin Lynch, Shannon Allen and April Randolph for their thoughtfulness and creativity this holiday,” a spokesperson for Bon Secours said.

UT Health East Texas

Babies at UT Health East Texas in Tyler also got in on the Easter fun. The UT Health Tyler Family Birthplace and NICU dressed up babies in outfits that included crocheted bunny hats and Easter egg blankets. The babies also had their feet stamped to make Easter art, and the NICU received a visit from the Easter bunny. All of the Easter sweetness was shared on the hospital’s Facebook page.

Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis

Nurses at Saint Francis Hospital-Memphis also got into the Easter spirit, dressing up babies as sweet bunnies and taking cute photos with Easter props that the families will enjoy for a lifetime.

ABC24 Memphis shared the photos on its Facebook page.

Easter is the holiest time of year in the Christian faith, and each of these children is a gift from God and a celebration of life. They are also a reminder that all lives are precious and that every life, created by God in His image, is unique and should be celebrated. Though these babies are vulnerable, they are valuable and they deserve love and to be treated with respect — whether they are inside the womb or out.
