1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By K Knoernschidl on June 7 2004
Format: Paperback
During the five months our son has been in the NICU, this book has been absolutely invaluable. For nearly every ailment or condition preemies face, there is a very comprehensive, easy to understand explaination of treatments and long term impact. The book is organized chronilogically, from the time before birth until preschool and beyond. It is useful both when reading for the first time and as a reference, due to a very complete index. No parent of a NICU baby, especially a long-term NICU baby, should go without this book. If I could give it six stars, I would.

My parents bought this for my husband and I two weeks ago when our little girl was born at 29 weeks. We have both found this book very helpful. My husband read is constantly while I was still hospitalized and I have been reading it since I came home. The NICU is an overwhelming place, and the nurses and doctors do their best to explain things in terms us non-medical people can understand. This book has thus far proven to be an excellent source we can reference on our own. It explains things in lay terms and the glossary in the back is excellent. If we don't understand something the nurse has told us, we just find it in this book and read on it. It has really helped to keep us calm and informed.
I definately recommend this book. We will keep this book for as long as we need it and I'm sure it will continue to be helpful as our little blessing grows up.

when my daughter was born prematurely at 29 weeks and 6 days gestation, i was devastated. i didn't know where to find information on premature babies. it was only after my baby came home from the endless days in the hospital, then i found this book. this book would have helped me if my baby were still in the NICU, because it provided a lot of information on NICU, and all the procedures and medical terms. it also would had saved me from looking so stupid in front of the doctors. overall, this book is highly recommended to all parents of preemies, especially if they are still in the NICU.

I delivered my daughter at 33 weeks by emergency C-section. During the next few weeks of staying at the hospital and spending time in the "special care" nursery, I read this book in the hospital guest room in between nursery visits. It was wonderful, and helped me keep my sanity. It explains all the high-tech stuff you'll see, talks about common problems in preemies, and puts everything into common language. Often I understood what they told me in the nursery, then forgot it once I left... sleep deprivation and stress does that to a person!... this book always had the answers I needed. If you are a new parent of a preemie, or know someone who is, I highly recommend this book!

I can't say enough about this book! What a help it has been for keeping my sanity and getting me through one of the most difficult times in my life. I was admitted to the hospital with premature labor at 20 weeks into my pregnancy. I stayed there for 3 months before delivering our son at the gestational age of 32 weeks, 4 days. Not knowing when I was actually going to deliver, this book explained everything one should expect at all stages of a pre-term delivery, beginning from 26 weeks through 34+ weeks. It covers reasons for premature labor and delivery, surgeries and drugs administered for premature labor, surviving bedrest/hospitalization, delivery, EVERYTHING to expect in a NICU, the differences between pre-term and full-term babies, bringing your preemie home, and their development during the chilhood years. Although I was not having twins, etc. myself, the book also includes a lot of great information on multiples. After reading and understanding the types of monitors and machinery my baby may have needed at each stage, I felt much better knowing WHY these things were attached to our son when he was born. My husband and I also took a tour of the NICU at our hospital (which I highly recommend!)so that it was much less of a shock when we found ourselves there after delivery. This book was right on the money, and we got to see everything they talked about hands-on. This is an excellent book to help anyone conquer the fears, worries and misconceptions of having a premature infant (and it also comes highly recommended from the nurses and neonatologists of our NICU as well!)

Format: Paperback
In addition to what all the other reviewers say about this book's completeness, I also liked that it broke down some of the problems by each gestational age. I had a very complicated pregnancy and there was a question about how long I could keep my triplets inside, and having some sections and information broken down by gestational age helped motivate me to keep my babies in a little bit longer. I am the parent of three 29-week girls and we have covered a range of the problems described in this book. I always found it useful to refer to this book to get more information when a problem arose.
I also like the Premie Parents Companion.
