Preterm births are rising, and the complications that are associated with them suggest that there is likely to be a lot of stress for the child and the family.

Child offers resources for parents of preemies...

There are lots of other issues, of course, but prevention education in the NICU seems prudent, especially on coping skills, and not just during the very difficult time in the NICU, but when parents and child leave the NICU for the world.

Kudos to the March of Dimes for the work they're doing to help bring attention to this issue...and to the fact that, as a whole, the US can do better
