Santa poses with the greatest gift of all: newborn babies in NICU
(Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin)

The babies at Ascension Seton Medical Center Austin's neonatal intensive care unit may not be home for their first Christmas, but Santa made sure to stop by to wish all the newborn boys and girls a happy first holiday.


The babies in the NICU unit were dressed in their holiday best for their very first meeting with Santa and Mrs. Claus.

Santa and Mrs. Claus were played by NICU staff, bringing the spirit of Christmas into the room despite their rosy cheeks covered by their mask.

Newborn babies in the NICU require complex care after they are born, often due to being born premature or experiencing health complications after birth.

COVID-19 safety measures have been taken at Ascension Seton to protect patients from potential exposure to the virus.
