Parenting workshops just for premmie parents
Attend a Premmie Parenting workshop while your little one is still admitted to the NICU. This will provide you with valuable, practical and up-to-date research-based information to help you cope with prematurity, interact and bond with your little one (even the very ill baby) and just enjoy the time in the hospital, instead of experiencing it as negative. Parents, grandparents and nannies will find these workshops very valuable. Find a licensed Little Steps® Premmie Parenting Consultant in your area and ask to see her/his valid license certificate (to be renewed annually). This will ensure that you really get the latest information.
Premmie Parenting Workshop program
These workshops cover topics such as understanding your premmie, communicating with your premmie, handling and interacting with your premmie, feeding of the preterm baby and preparing for discharge.
