The Camellia Project provides information & support to women who have had a baby hospitalized in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). We offer guidance & a place for women to be active in their own care. The project serves women living in Baker, Clay, Nassau, St. Johns & Duval counties. Project staff provides initial support while the babies are still in the NICU; facilitates postpartum care; provides education, support and individual case management with linkage to community services. The goal is to improve health knowledge and behaviors for women in rural areas to reduce the risk of recurrent poor birth outcomes.
The Camellia Project is funded by the March of Dimes.

Participants have the opportunity to tell their stories and hear from other parents who are experiencing the same things.
Having a baby in the NICU can be confusing & overwhelming for parents. The Camellia Project addresses how to handle that stress.
