Extremely helpful resource for NICU families
on October 23, 2016
No one ever pictures they'd be a NICU family with a preemie baby. We sure didn't see it ourselves. Our daughter was born on the edge of viability, just barely 27 weeks & was an extremely sick micropreemie baby. (She weighed 1 pound and a few ounces.) After 184 days of being in the NICU, my husband & I were still in a tailspin, looking for answers...this book gave us a direction to start. It's comprehensive, but compassionate. It gives resources but remains relatable. Things YOU NEED when preemie life gets rolling and you don't know which way is up. The authors speak from a place as both mommies and as professionals. We appreciated that it wasn't just a pet project from two academics; they've been there-even understand child loss & stillbirth. For us, our journey into disability & special needs has become a little more clear and the perspectives offered in this book certainly gave words to some of our experiences. I'm recommending it AND the app to other NICU families and NICU grads.
