What We Didn't Expect: Personal Stories about Premature Birth

Melody Schreiber (Editor)
Pre-Order   Ships November 10th


From the story of being a "miracle baby" of undocumented immigrants to a NICU nurse who finds herself having premature twins this anthology represents the diversity of experience with preemies and will be a welcome resource for many who need these words.

Every year, 400,000 families in the United States have a premature baby. Ten percent of babies in the US are preemies. There are textbooks, medical-ish guidebooks, and the occasional memoir to turn to ... but no personal essay collections from the many types of people who have parented, cared for, or been preemies themselves. In What We Didn't Expect, Melody Schreiber brings together acclaimed writers and thinkers to share their diverse stories of having or being premature babies, including Representative Pramila Jayapal, Tyrese Coleman, Anne Th riault, Sarah DiGregorio, Dan Koboldt, and many more.
