The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) often causes stress, anxiety and fear for parents during hospitalization of their infant. Religion and spirituality are important for many parents and to make the infant healthier and normal they pray God. Supplication is the spirit of worship and results from sincere belief.
We present religious and spiritual aspect of parents in the NICU to increase the awareness of NICU staff regarding the importance of spiritual care for parents.
In conclusion, we strongly suggest that NICU staff should support parents in the NICU for spiritual care, because it is the right of them. Health professionals should also be trained for spiritual support and care.
