High-risk pregnancy baby books?

Postby sandy » Sat May 08, 2004 07:58 pm

Does anyone know of any high-risk pregnancy baby books that exist?

I looked and looked, and could only find the standard ones for "by the book" pregnancies and deliveries. I have modified a standard one, but it really would be nice to have extra pages for all those u/s pictures, more room for the "birth story" instead of a few lines, a whole page to journal what mom did while on bedrest all that time, a "post" section for NICU progress and pictures...etc.

And if one doesn't exist...in addition to the PF gear, maybe a high-risk baby book should be added?

Hey Sandy,

I found a couple of memory books that chronicle NICU stays and preemie milestones etc. I liked the "Treasured Memories" better than "Prematurely Yours". But, both look very good. Do a search on-line and see if you can find the best price for either title. Good idea.

And your cute, little swinger is adorable! How old is she in the avatar pic?

You can always customize too.

I like Sandy's idea! I think the PF should publish a bedrest book, too.

Hi Nancy,
Thank you for those book names. I will do a search and take a look.

(The Avtar pic of DD was taken last month at 9 1/2 months old. She used to be thin looking and now she has cheeks, knees, thighs, wrists all with little baby "fat". It's so nice to finally see!!)
