Starship NICU Journal App

The Starship NICU Journal App

The Starship NICU Journal App is the launch product of an exciting collaboration between Starship Child Health and the Digital Enablement Team at Auckland District Health Board.

Now parents and caregivers with babies admitted to the Starship Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) are able to keep a digital journal as an alternative to the NICU journal books. The Starship NICU Journal App provides parents and caregivers with a convenient way to record their baby’s journey through Neonatal ICU. Precious NICU moments can now be preserved and easily shared via their mobile phone.

The app has been designed primarily for Starship NICU families but can be used by anyone who has a baby in any NICU or SCBU environment. Free to download, the app is easily accessible and is available on the iOS App Store and Google Play Store. All features in the App are free to use.

To download, search ‘Starship NICU Journal’ on the App Store or Google Play Store.

We hope you enjoy using this App and would love to receive any feedback
