Are you a parent, family member, or friend of someone who has unexpectedly welcomed a preterm baby?
This book is for you. Here, I share my journey of giving birth to a preterm baby weighing only 1400 grams (1.4 kg) and born eight weeks early. It covers the highs and lows of our journey in the NICU, the challenges of pumping, the amazing Kangaroo Mother Care, and the joy of bringing our baby home and navigating through his first year.
This book is more than a memoir. I offer valuable insights about baby care, from tracking pumping and feedings to monitoring weight gain and celebrating those special milestones. Also, the emotional roller coaster that often accompanies this journey. Trust me. We have been there. I have shared tips on handling stress and staying positive.
Most importantly, this book is a reminder that you are not alone. It will be a heartwarming and informative read to help you through this challenging time
