I'm excited to share that I've started writing for About.com (Updated - now VeryWell.com) on the topic of prematurity, and I just recently published my first (of many) articles.
For my inaugural article, it made sense to start with some of the most basic yet important advice that I can give to new NICU parents.Entitled "10 Things your NICU Nurses Wish you Knew," it's a quick and useful list of 10 simple ways to make the NICU journey a smother and more enjoyable one, which I think is a really important goal.
You can read it here:
I hope you'll share this advice with any new NICU moms or dads, because the sooner they have a chance to empower themselves, the sooner they can begin to bond and heal and thrive.
If you have any recommendations about articles you think would be helpful to the preemie community at large, please don't hesitate to contact me - I love email and would love to hear your suggestions!
