Prematurity is a worldwide epidemic. Based on reports from the March of Dimes, almost 12.9 million babies are born too soon each year throughout the world. More than half a million babies are born too early in the United States alone. These babies are struggling to survive in one of the hundreds of Neonatal Intensive Care Units that are located throughout the United States.
On August 25, 2009 The New York Times stated that parents of babies that are in the NICU suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder because of the emotional impact of having a premature baby. Usually, this kind of disorder is often associated with "surviving war, car accidents and assault". These parents will benefit the most from joining the community at PreemieParents.com.
