Preemies: The Essential Guide for Parents of Premature Babies

By Dana Wechsler Linden, Emma Trenti Paroli, and Mia Wechsler Doron, the creators of the award-winning MyPreemie app

Preemies - Second Edition: The Essential Guide for Parents of Premature Babies

Preemies is the only parents’ reference resource of its kind—delivering up-to-the-minute information on medical care of premature babies in a warm, caring, and engaging voice. Authors Dana Wechsler Linden and Emma Trenti Paroli are preemie parents who have “been there.” Together with neonatologist Mia Wechsler Doron, they answer the dozens of questions that parents of preemies will have at every stage—from high-risk pregnancy through preemie hospitalization, to homecoming and the preschool years—imparting a vast, detailed store of knowledge in clear language that all readers can understand.

If you are a preemie parent or health care provider and would like to comment on the book, ask the authors a question, invite them to speak, or tell us about your own prematurity journey, please write to us directly: authors@preemiesthebook.com.

Supporting Preemie Parents in Difficult Times

As we work together through these challenging times, you may have questions about how Graham’s Foundation is supporting our preemie parent community. Fortunately, because our support programs have always been delivered virtually, we are equipped to deliver all of our programs today, tomorrow, and into the future to continue to meet the psychosocial needs of parents.

Our Care Packages offer helpful tips for self-care and navigating the NICU and going home (our supplies have been in stock since before the COVID-19 outbreak), our MyPreemie app provides critical preemie-related information and helps parents journal their NICU experience, and our three dozen trained mentors are available to lend an ear and offer words of advice and encouragement.

In such a difficult time, it is more important than ever that we are here for the most vulnerable members of our community and Graham’s Foundation is ready. We are grateful to our volunteers and the individuals and industry partners who make generous donations that enable us to develop and deliver our support programs.

In Gratitude,

Nicholas Hall, Founder
