Blog: CIHR Talks Video Contest

November 14th, 2016

The #ItDoesntHavetoHurt video, “3 Ways to Instantly Relieve Your Baby’s Pain” is under consideration in a video contest being held by the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR).

In this video, Jack Hourigan shares the story of her daughter, Tess, who was born 12-weeks premature. Tess was in the hospital for 82 days and had to go through numerous intrusive, and sometimes painful, procedures—up to 10 a day. During her hospital stay, the nurses and doctors taught Jack 3 techniques to reduce her baby’s pain almost instantly. Now, Jack is sharing these techniques with other moms, because they work on all babies, not just those who were born prematurely.
