Setting Visitor Guidelines after the NICU can be a difficult conversation for parents to have with grandparents, family members, and friends. Many times, others don’t fully understand the importance of keeping all babies, but especially babies who have graduated from the NICU safe from respiratory illness and germs.
Dr. Stefanie Lopacinski, Perinatal Behavioral Health Consultant at Abington-Jefferson Health is here to talk about this important topic for families. Dr. Lopacinski earned her Bachelor of Arts in Psychology from Temple University. After completing a Master’s degree in social work from the University of Pennsylvania, she graduated from The Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality with two doctorate degrees in Human Sexuality and Education. She has over 15 years of clinical experience providing individual, couples, and group therapy in several settings, including outpatient and inpatient centers. Her last 5 years at Abington has been providing individual therapy to Moms with Perinatal Mood and Anxiety Disorders in Pregnancy and Postpartum as well as Perinatal Loss.
