Volunteer 'NICU Grandpa' An Angel to Babies and Parents Alike

This Atlanta volunteer brings comfort to both premature babies and worried parents.

By The Editors

For the past 12 years, Atlanta resident David Deutchman has spent his Tuesdays and Thursdays doing what he describes as the best job ever though it involves getting peed and puked on. Deutchman volunteers in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta where he holds, soothes, and comforts premature babies, some born as early as 25 weeks old.

"Some people just don't understand the kind of reward you would get from holding a baby like this," Deutchman told 11Alive reporter Kaitlyn Ross. 

Deutchman quickly earned the nickname "NICU Grandpa," and most parents are grateful for his presence. 

MaryBeth Brulette's son Logan was born weighing less than 2 lbs. She drives two hours each way to see Logan, and was brought to tears when she found him in Deutchman's arms.

“When I saw Grandpa, I of course started crying,” Brulette said. “Because it was so precious and he was so cozy in his arms and Grandpa was just as happy as can be, as if it was his own grandchild.”

To Deutchman, this is the most significant part of his life. 

“It’s been wonderful because it gives me something to do that has meaning to it," he said.
