The title is really a bit of a misnomer, as what the book does best is provide information for the new parent, especially one whose baby is doing relatively well and is not extremely premature. For someone whose situation is more fragile, I would recommend this be supplemented by one of the more extensive books in our recommendations on prematurity.org. However, there is a broad audience for this book, as most preemies will do well in the NICU and after; for those parents this is a gentle and supportive introduction.
Found it very helpful to understand and very precise when you are overwhelmed with this emotional roller coaster and when you are trying to understand the terms of all the conditions that you babies are dealing with.
IF you are at a more advance stage, where your kids are about to go home OR have been already in the NICU for a while, then, you may know already everything that is explained in this book, therefore, you should look for something else that will teach you how to deal with situations you may come across after your babies go Home
