We are so lucky to live near Sunnybrook, one of the best maternity wards and NICUs in Canada. We also got lucky that the girls scored a twin room as there are only two in the NICU.
Sunnybrook’s NICU is separated into pods, so everyone gets their own pod. I spend my day in the room pumping, Kangarooing the girls, and sometimes just sitting on the couch checking emails.
I haven’t heard the nurses say incubators, they call them houses. Since our pod is our home away from home, it only makes sense.
