Ir­ish Pre­ma­ture Ba­bies ad­vises fam­ily/friends:

Be sen­si­tive to the emo­tional strain of pre­ma­ture birth on par­ents.

Baby may be very sick — avoid be­ing too con­grat­u­la­tory. Ac­knowl­edge what par­ents are go­ing through and their fears for baby.

Yet, recog­nise baby. Even when out­come’s un­cer­tain, par­ents ap­pre­ci­ate baby gifts.

Be thought­ful if send­ing cards. Go for blank cards — write your own heart­felt message.
