Essential Guide for Parents of Premature Babies, The: Preemies
by Linden, Paroli & Doron
The authors present a comprehensive guidebook for parents whose babies are born prematurely. One out of 10 babies in the U.S. is born early, but in half of these cases the mothers have no known risk of giving birth prematurely, so they can't prepare for the whirlwind of unexpected events and emotions they will experience in the neonatal unit. The authors fulfill the need for information with remarkable clarity, offering answers to a multitude of questions.

Premature Baby Book, The
by W. Sears, R. Sears, J. Sears, & M. Sears
About 12% of all babies born in the U.S. are born prematurely, say William & Martha Sears, a husband-and-wife, doctor-and-nurse team of pediatric experts. They co-wrote this book on the essentials of premature births with their two oldest sons, Bob and Jim, who are pediatricians, and the result is a comprehensive, authoritative guide to understanding why babies are born prematurely, what the ramifications of such birth are and what parents can do about it.


Little Man

Sometimes the greatest love story is about your very own family. Little Man is the story of how a micro-preemie brought a family to its knees. When Nicholas is born 100 days early, he weighs only one pound and faces impossible odds for survival. As he struggles for life, so struggle filmmaker Nicole Conn and political activist Gwen Baba to keep their family from disintegrating under the unrelenting stress and chaos of hospitals, emergency medical crises and a crushing blow to trust. Little Man explores the core of the human spirit as a family realizes that they are capable of enduring what they never thought possible.
