Format: Paperback
I thought that the book "Miracle Birth Stories Of Very Premature Babies" by Timothy Smith was a well crafted and welcome addition to the world of medical literature. As I was reading, I felt like I was in the hospital with each set of parents, going through their triumphs and defeats with them.
One strong aspect of the book is that it is written for the average person, in basic language that we can all understand. The medical information provided is relevent and accurate, but we are not bogged down in medical and hospital terminology. Medical journals and texts are often written in a very dry, academic tone that is hard to get through. Also, as I was reading I also felt that I was learning information about a controversial topic without being preached to.
We have all heard things about this topic through magazines, television news, newspapers, tabloids, etc. Smith is a veteran newspaper reporter and it shows. Each story is special in their own situation, and the different families are tied together in a nice way through a common cord of compassion, mutual experiences, and hopes for the future. I wish that premature birth parents in hospitals everywhere could receive this book. It is truly inspirational and lets them know they are not alone.

Tim Smith has captured the reality of giving birth to a premature baby. The heartache, the joy, the unknown, the inner workings of a miracle in process! I wish I had this book when my daughter was born early. The spectrum of stories is varied enough to interest many different families going through any number of versions of the same story. I bought 10 copies to send to the NICU where my daughter "grew". I'm hoping that some other parents entering the NICU experience will benefit from the hopeful message the book brings.

Format: Paperback
Parents facing the suspense and stress of premature childbirth can take heart by reading this! In fact, it should be in the waiting room by every hospital's preemie ward, so anxious parents can read these stories of tiny bodies with enormous courage. Tim Smith has told the tale of his own daughter's bravery, and the tales of other families going through this difficult experience, with insight and warmth. This is a must-have for anyone who needs to believe in the power of the human spirit.

This book is a compelling and poignant look into the lives of premature babies and their families. Written in an honest and forthright manner, the book offers us a unique insight into the challenges and successes a family experiences in the unsure circumstance of prenatal and neonatal care. By using actual families, and their struggles, Smith succeeds in talking us on a riveting journey that we can all rejoice over.
