Happy World Prematurity Day! Today is the day to honour those tiny fighters, their parents,the hardworking and dedicated neonatal staff and the big brothers and sisters who are waiting at home for their babies. Our booklet helps children to understand why baby isn’t home just yet. It was all made possible by a little girl called Aoibhinn who was born prematurely. She is now nearly two and is an inspiration. Her mums raised funding to help other parents who found themselves in this situation. The booklet is being introduced to Irish Neonatal units. All parents who have a toddler or child at home will be offered one. There are two versions. If you would like to know more, you will find the TiNYHealth tab on the Writing for TiNY page.
