There is a new show on cable called NICU. It follows babies born who have to go to the NICU. It is a very informative show about what life is like for babies and parents who have to spend time in the NICU.

A lot of the babies were born prematurely. Some to mothers who have Incompetent Cervix. It makes me sad when I see babies who were only a few days older than Mason survive and go home eventually, but it also opens my eyes to the struggles these babies face. It also makes me realize how awesome our God is. My babies were born almost 6 weeks premature and did not have to go to the NICU. There are babies who are born only a few weeks early spending time there and I realize just how blessed we were. It is truly amazing what God had to overcome to bring Noah and Mina into this world healthy. I truly thank Him for his mercy and love.

I encourage anybody who might be facing prematurity, or has a relative facing premature delivery to check it out. I think the information both scientific, and emotional will help anybody facing this trial. When you see what can happen, it makes you realize what a miracle we are.

I agree that the NICU series on DiscoveryHealth is exceptional. The March of Dimes is very pleased to see them show how big a problem premature birth is, not only at delivery but often for many years to come if not a lifetime. Thanks for sharing this.
