As part of Tommy’s pledge to support parents who have experienced a pregnancy complication or loss, they’ve put together a new guide for parents who have had – or are at risk of having – a premature baby.
Developed and produced with a grant from the Asda Foundation, the new guide provides parents and parents-to-be who are at risk of pre-term labour with the information and advice needed during their pregnancy, birth, time in hospital and early days at home.
The guide combines advice from health professionals and tips and stories from parents to help mums and dads going through similar experiences.
Louisa, whose son was born at 28 weeks and was in special care of eight weeks, was one of the parents who helped to develop the book.
She says: “I think that the guide is brilliant. It is so comprehensive and I would have loved to have had a book like that as all the ones I read left us wanting.”
The guide is free to order online on the Tommy’s website now.
