Hold Your Premie: A workbook on skin-to-skin contact for parents of premature babies


Learn here that latest research shows that “Hold Your Premie” is in fact vital.  Until recently, modern technology in Neonatal Intensive Care separated mothers and fathers from their babies, believing babies to be too fragile and unstable to touch, never mind hold.

Things are changing!  The latest research shows that it is separation from mother that makes babies in incubators frightened and so unstable.  When held in skin-to-skin contact, even the smallest baby will feel safe, and she will stabilize.  As development is incomplete, all other modern technology is added as needed.

In this book, Jill Bergman describes in everyday language for every parent the key concepts from recent neuroscience and newborn care.  Jill talks parents through their emotional turmoil, on to practical things to do, empowering them to become central to the team for their baby’s care. 

Final word to Mom and Dad:

All you need to know and do to protect your baby’s brain development and give better quality of life for her future, is “Hold Your Premie”!
