Publisher's Description

The comprehensive “Dr. Spock”-like reference that is both reassuring and realistic—now updated to reflect the many advances in neonatology.

Preemies, Second Edition is the only parents’ reference resource of its kind—delivering up-to-the-minute information on medical care in a warm, caring, and engaging voice. Authors Dana Wechsler Linden and Emma Trenti Paroli are parents who have “been there.” Together with neonatologist Mia Wechsler Doron, they answer the dozens of questions that parents will have at every stage—from high-risk pregnancy through preemie hospitalization, to homecoming and the preschool years—imparting a vast, detailed store of knowledge in clear language that all readers can understand.

Preemies, Second Edition covers topics related to premature birth, including:

What are your risk factors for having a premature baby?

Can you do something to delay early labor?

What do doctors know about you baby’s outlook during her first minutes and days of life?

How will your preemie’s progress be monitored?

How do you cope with a long hospitalization?

Are there special preparations for you baby’s homecoming?

What kind of stimulation during the first year gives your baby the best chance?

Will your preemie grow up healthy? Normal?
