Premature babies often have to spend some time in special care units attached to maternity hospitals. This can be a very frightening experience for new parents, particularly when your tiny baby is in an incubator surrounded with medical equipment and beeping machines. Staff are there to support you as well as look after your baby and there are still ways you can be involved in your baby's care.
We have provided some downloadable resources that give information on how your baby is processing sensory information as well as the different states of arousal your baby experiences. Please click on the links on the right to view these resources.
