A Preemie’s Journey

This easy-to-read picture book imagines a premature baby's journey into the world, told from the baby's perspective. The title, BRAVE AND STRONG, characterizes the mood of the book, which is meant to encourage moms and other family members about the inherent urgency for survival that these newborns possess. While not avoiding the serious issues cased by stress and risk that exist on all parts (mothers, families, child's), Brave and Strong presents a positive outcome with a successful birth and love as triumphant.

Premature births, defined as anything less than 39 weeks of gestation, have been growing in recent years, particularly among certain populations. Worldwide, the statistics remain at about 11 percent of all births, which is a sizeable proportion, meaning that over 15 million infants are at risk in this way. The good news, however, is that for those who have access to pregnancy counseLling, nutrition services and hospital care, particularly the presence of Neonatal Intensive Care Units (N-I-C-U), the rates can be decreased. chances of survival increased and long-term negative effects greatly diminished. The authors, as well as the team at Hohm Press, are proud to present this small contribution toward increasing the positive mental and emotional energy that can support mother and child at this critical time.
