LOGAN, Utah (AP) -- A Logan hospital is letting faraway relatives connect with newborn family through webcams installed above its baby beds.

The Herald Journal reports Logan Regional Hospital is the second hospital in Utah to install the cameras, which let families see newborns through a password-protected website.

Megan Stein says the technology excited her mother as Stein gave birth to premature twins earlier this month. Her husband's parents have also used the cameras to see their grandsons.

The hospital has installed 15 of the cameras, which require parental permission to be used.

Stein says the webcams are comforting as her babies stay in the hospital's newborn intensive care unit. She's also staying in the hospital but has checked on her sons through the webcams.
