Synopsis: The premature birth of a baby often takes parents by surprise, leaving them unprepared for the puzzling emotions and medical complications that may follow early deliveries. Caring for Your Premature Baby is a comprehensive and reassuring look at everything from state of the art medical information, to the incredible importance of a parent1s loving touch. It shows parents how to work with the healthcare team in providing their baby with the very best care.

Caring for Your Premature Baby guides parents step by step through:

  • Coping with the complex emotions that often accompany an early birth

  • How to be an active participant in caring for your baby in the neonatal unit

  • Understanding medical complications and the range of possible treatments

  • Preparing for that wonderful day when you take your baby home

  • Working with health insurance providers and managing the ongoing care that your baby may need

  • Plus, roundtable discussions among the authors and parents of premature babies

Review: Parents of the approximately 11 percent of babies born prematurely (prior to 37 weeks gestation) will find this title a highly valuable resource guide, offering detailed medical information and emotional support. Authors Alan H. Klein, M.D., and Jill Alison Ganon, who deem prematurity "a different beginning," combine the experience of Klein's 25 years as a pediatrician and neonatologist with the assuring point of view of parents who have been there.

Having a baby early births a host of medical complications, such as respiratory, vision, and hearing problems. Parents of premature infants are often plunged unprepared into the mysterious world of medical acronyms, for example: NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit); RDS (Respiratory Distress Syndrome); CLD (chronic lung disease); and ROP (retinopathy of prematurity). In chapters focusing on respiratory, neurological, and nutritional needs, as well as vision and hearing problems, Klein and Ganon describe medical conditions, treatments, and options so parents can make the best decisions. Chapters on changing expectations, parenting a child in the neonatal unit, and taking baby home balance the medical with the emotional issues of parenting a premature child. "Pessimism serves no purpose whatsoever," writes Klein. Indeed, the true-life stories and photographs of premature infants developing into healthy, rounded babies and children offer an overwhelming sense of hope and encouragement. --Ericka Lutz
