Hi Dotty
Sending lots of good wishes to your family at this scary time. I found the Bliss Family Handbook invaluable. The neonatal unit may have a copy but if not you can order from Bliss online and it's free.

Hi dotty, I'm not sure about books I'm afraid. butI had ds 1 at 26 weeks and ds2 9 weeks ago at 24 weeks, ds 1 is 4 now and perfect, ds2 doing great. I'm sending good wishes and thoughts.
I'd be happy to answer any questions/talk if you want to pm me.

Book called Preemies: your essential guide to your premature baby, written by a dr and two mums who met in a nicu is brilliant. Its a big thick tome full of info which I referred to again and again after DD turned up at 27 weeks. Saved my sanity many a time and gave me warning of the next thing to worry about! Wishing mum and LO all the best x
