3.5 stars.

I read this book partly for work—I do research on medical decision making, and am planning to soon start doing research on parents’ decision making for sick infants and other children—and partly out of personal interest, as I myself was born prematurely (10 weeks early) over 32 years ago. I was interested to see what this book, which was written by a leading Canadian neonatologist who has done decades-long follow-up on children born prematurely is aimed at parents of premature infants

I greatly am honoured to be apart of such a wonderful book. Teaching many and myself what really goes on and how we all pulled through in the very early beginnings of the NICU and went on to lead full lives. This book shows the great dedication of everyone involved in running the NICU from the NICU staff to doctors, parents, families and us the tiny warriors on the front line....the preemies. We are so lucky to have such a wonderful place right in our city. Thank You for asking me to take part ...more

As an adult born extremely premature in the late 70's, i have found this book a life-changing revelation. Prof Saigal's work has enabled me, for the first time, to directly compare my own survival with that of my cohorts.
This book allows the reader a glimpse into the hidden world of the issues surrounding pre-term birth, yet it also highlights the continuing triumph over adversity these preemies show. That the fighting spirit us preemies are so often credited with at birth, truly never leaves

It was a joy to read the life stories, positive outcomes and of the successes of these now adult "extreme preemies". I think this book will be helpful to parents and families who must face the birth, and future, of a premature infant. "Preemie Voices" will give them hope rather than despair when worrying about the child's future and quality of life.
