Premature birth. Preemie. NICU. Only preemie parents understand the weight behind these words.
My preemie story is just 1 out of roughly 380,000 babies born prematurely each year in the United States and tragically, an estimated 1.1 million preterm babies die every year.
Every preemie story is unique, and every story needs to be honored.
November is Prematurity Awareness Month and PreemieWorld is shining a spotlight on this maternal and infant health crisis. Need resources?
