Good to feel good: 22 week deliveries are stressful, not because of the actual process (small baby, easier birth) but because of the concern about your baby.

Gentle cuddling including erogenous stimulation may be really helpful in coming through a difficult tim ...Read more

With a prior C-section, they often staff the delivery unit with extra personnel & a surgical suite already prepared (nearby) because there is an increased risk that a repeat may be needed more acutely. ...Read more
