Won't Someone Think of the Children?

Note to self: If I'm ever a newborn again, I will need to stay the hell out of the ICU.

According to recent studies, newborns in the intensive care unit of hospitals undergo multiple procedures associated with pain and stress, and no relief measures are offered.

I don't know if they're expecting the babies to respond to aromatherapy or Shiatsu massage, but it does seem kind of cruel to make them go through all that so soon after birth.
