Spanish, Catalan and English (basic)

I am NIDCAP certified, which is a care model focused on development and family. This system attempts to reduce stressful situations for our newborns, and it involves the mothers and fathers in the care of their babies. When a newborn is admitted to the Unit, I contact the parents to offer them information and answer any questions they may have. On home visits I accompany the families and their newborns to conduct a follow-up. When I have free time, I like hiking in the mountains to help me recharge my batteries.
