„Your baby is premature! The first 48 hours are critical. At this stage we cannot give a prognosis.“

Usually these are the first words you hear after a baby is born prematurely. Thousands of questions rush into your consciousness – ‘Did he/she cry? Does he/she breathe? What can I expect? Will he/she live? What is the meaning of these complex terms used to describe our baby’s condition?...“ Here, we try to answer most of the questions you might be asking yourself and we hope that this will make you more informed, calmer and more confident.

We really hope that the materials in this website are useful for  you and we wish you to have your baby at home very soon!
Let it grow healthy and happy child!
