Hospital Social Worker
The first few days of having a baby, especially one that is in the ICU are so overwhelming. Especially if you try to think of how you are going to pay for everything. Your focus should be on your child so get everyone involved you can to help. Start with hospital social workers. They will get you set up with hospital specific grants and possibly medicaid, as well as do the paperwork for you! Utilize those that do this everyday to be on your team so you can spend your thoughts on your child.
