BabyZone's Premature Baby Page, Dr. Nathan:"The purpose of this site is to educate and support parents, other family members and friends of prematurely born infants. Having a baby born prematurely usually frightens parents. Depending on the degree of prematurity, your newborn baby may be at risk of serious illness and even death. These pages provide information, not medical advice. Your doctor and your baby's doctor are the best sources for medical advice."

Helping Parents Cope With A High-Risk Birth: Terror, Grief, Impotence, And Anger, Michael T. Hynan, Ph.D. :"Today I will talk about each of the emotions of terror, grief, impotence, and anger as they occur in high- risk parents. You will learn about my family and how we experienced these unfortunate feelings during my son's birth. And you will also hear the stories of many high- risk parents, who have shared their emotional struggles with me. I hope to be able to put some substance and feelings into abstract works like grief and impotence, to express the feelings that many times we high- risk parents hold back- - because we are afraid people and especially the medical staff will think we are crazy and that we can't handle our crises."
By Michael T. Hynan, Ph.D. University Of Wisconsin-Milwaukee:

Labor Of Love, Supporting The Development Of Preterm Infants, Nurseweek:"Physiologically unprepared for life outside the womb, preterm infants have traditionally undergone intense, intrusive, and medically focused care. But what happens when preemies get care that focuses on developmental support? The NICU at California Hospital Medical Center has provided an answer: dramatically improved outcomes."

Premature Baby, Pregnancy and Parenting Health Glossary, Babyzone.com:"Baby born three or more weeks before the due date. The length of a pregnancy is measured by gestational age. Gestational age equals the amount of time that has elapsed since the first day of the last menstrual period. A normal gestation lasts 40 weeks or 280 days. If delivery occurs before 37 weeks gestation, the baby is considered prematurely born. About 12.5% of all babies born in 2004 were born prematurely by this definition, an increase of 30% since 1981."

Premie Lung Disorder From Ventilators Can Cause Developmental Problems:"Babies weighing as little as 1-1/2 pounds would not have survived a generation ago, but through recent technological advances, most of these children are able to live today. However, some of that life-giving technology is also exacting a price on the kids, according to a new study published in the December issue of the medical journal Pediatrics."

What You Should Know About Sudden Infant Death Syndrome:"Sudden infant death syndrome, also referred to as SIDS and crib death, strikes suddenly, killing seemingly healthy infants during their sleep. The facts are as perplexing as the deaths."

Baby-parenting.com:"Baby-parenting.com was born in Ireland in 2001 out of the frustration of our founders who couldn't find a single jargon-free resource in either the real world or in cyberspace. They had many questions on conception, the pregnancy months and after the birth. But they realised that they would have to spend a large amount of time sifting through different providers of information. This was time consuming and stressful. When other people felt the same way the foundation for the Baby-parenting.com Infomediary was laid."
