Family Perspectives on Prematurity

Perhaps the most meaningful perspectives on prematurity are those offered by the families of premature babies. This article shares the experiences of real families.

The perspectives featured in this article vary, one from another, and shift over time, depending on each family’s circumstances and the baby’s developmental course. The family members who tell their stories here responded to an invitation to ZERO TO THREE readers or were referred to us by their friends. We welcome additional family stories for publication in ZERO TO THREE or posting on the ZERO TO THREE Web site.
