Are you part of the NICU club? Do you have a child who is still struggling with the effects of being born too soon from preeclampsia? Share your concerns and stories here among parents who have been there.

Welcome, all!!! I am also a new member. I had my son by emergency c-section due to severe pre-e which also came out of nowhere. He is doing really well with his feeds and was up to 3 lbs 15 oz (1780 grams) yesterday. Our little piggy, lol!!! We are hoping we might be able to bring him home in a week or 2!!!

Welcome all new members, and congrats on your little wonders!!!

Glenda, I wish I could offer you some sage advice, but my knowledge of your granddaughter's syndrome is close to nil. Is there another children's hospital in Mobile where you could get a second opinion? I wish you all the best...Please let us know how she's doing!

I am not sure what hospitals specialize in that type of field, but you can look up some of the top childerns hospitals in the country. I know NY and Pennsylvania have very good children's hospitals. St. Louis Children's hospital is another good one.

That should give you a good start at researching different places and leads to others.
