Description : Based on her own harrowing experiences and her expertise as a psychiatric social worker, Jo Clancy addresses the parents of preterm babies, discussing the heartbreak and stress involved, the impact on the whole family of the death of the dream of a healthy full-term baby. She talks about how to survive leaving your baby behind after you've given birth, how to survive the long weeks while the baby is in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). She describes the experience of the mother's pain, the father's grief, the pain of the older children and the grandparents; how to cope with others' reactions to the birth, and the unbearable anguish when the baby dies. She describes the mixture of high delight and high anxiety when at last the baby comes home from the neonatal unit. A central motif of this hands-on survival guide is that parents must not be shy about seeking help, in fact they can't survive without it - whether from family, friends, coworkers, Social Security or the local school system. A useful reading list and resource guide will help new parents of preemies find what they need to survive. The book ends with the very moving diary Jo Clancy kept, addressed to her son Vincent, while he hovered for weeks between life and death in the infant intensive care unit. The whole emotional roller-coaster ride of joy at small improvements, and terror at the innumerable crises that make up the experience of parenting a preterm baby is there.

Description : Despite the fact that most people become parents and everyone who has ever lived has had parents, parenting remains a mystifying subject about which almost everyone has opinions, but about which few people agree. Striking permutations on the theme of parenting are emerging--single parenthood, blended families, lesbian and gay parents, and teen versus fifties first-time moms and dads. Divided into four volumes, the Handbook of Parenting is concerned with different types of parents, basic characteristics of parenting, forces that shape parenting, problems faced by parents, and the practical sides of parenting. Contributors have worked in different ways toward understanding all of these diverse aspects of parenting and look to the most recent research and thinking in the field to shed light on many topics every parent has wondered about. Because development is too subtle, dynamic, and intricate to admit that parental caregiving alone determines the course and outcome of ontogeny, volume 1 concerns how children influence parenting. Volume 2 relates parenting to its biological roots and sets parenting in its ecological framework. Volume 3 distinguishes among the cast of characters responsible for parenting and is revealing of the psychological make-ups and social interests of those individuals. Volume 4 describes problems of parenting as well as the promotion of positive parenting practices. Written to be read and absorbed in a single sitting, each chapter addresses a different but central topic in parenting, and is rooted in current thinking and theory as well as classic and modern research on that topic. All chapters follow a standard organization including an introduction to the chapter as a whole followed by historical considerations of the topic, a discussion of central issues and theory, a review of classic and modern research, forecasts of future directions for theory and research, and a conclusion. In addition to considering their own convictions and research, the chapter contributors present and broadly interpret all major points of view and central lines of inquiry.

Or does your child have a premature little sister or brother and has a lot of questions about him or her? The association Angelique's stories puts itself at the children's level to explain to them all the medical journey of babies born too early, but also all the emotional feelings of the parents during the whole period of hospitalization of the little ones. Take your child by the hand and take him to a neonatal intensive care unit where he will discover how babies are welcomed and cared for from birth. Detailed guided tour with beautiful illustrations! Your child will also discover how Mum and Dad feel when they first visit the unit, but also how the doctors take care of and look after babies at the slightest alert from the incubators. Your child will also understand why a premature baby sometimes has to stay in the hospital for several months before he or she can go home. He will also see that he can come to the hospital to see his little sister or brother and ask questions to the doctors, or talk to a psychologist if he feels anxious. He will understand so well that he will be able to act as a "doctor" to his schoolmates to talk to them about his birth or that of his little sister or brother! Each double page has an illustration to accompany the explanations and thus help the children to better understand their story or that of their little sister or brother. Caesarean section births, the reasons why some babies are born far too early, why some of them do not survive. And yes, with the touching story of Shooting Star the Little Heroine in our book, your child will be able to understand all this so that there will be no more mystery surrounding their birth or that of their little sister or brother! And older one day, your child will be able to give this wonderful book to his or her son or daughter and he or she will be able to offer it to friends so that they too can better understand the beginning of life of premature babies in a few pictures! A book that your child will be proud to put in his or her library and take out when he or she needs to remember how his or her first months of life in the "hospital-cocoon" went!
