A Mother's Diary

How to Survive the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

By Menetra D. Hathorn

Order Book

Review by Allison Martin

After Menetra Hathorn's baby girl, Rayven, was born very early at less than 24 weeks gestation, her mother wanted to pass on her hard earned advice and her personal experience of life in the roller coaster of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). Her first hand account of her baby's 119 days in the NICU is sure to touch your heart.

A Mother's Diary: How to Survive the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a collection of the diary entries she kept for her daughter during this rocky time, intersperced with her explanations and thoughts on what was happening at the time. The combination of the two views, page after page, provides a real look into the conflicting feelings of a preemie mother. In addition, Menetra Hathorn's collection of advice for survival tips for parents and her lessons learned along the way will provide a roadmap for parents embarking on this life changing experience.
