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.

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

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?
