Book Winner

The winner of The Preemie Primer is…

Denise Stewart!

Her comment for the giveaway was as follows:

“My son is now one year old (barely). He was 7 weeks early. I would benefit from deciding to get pregnant again. It would also help to have something with pictures of a NICU to be able to show my son when he gets older, and to show family and friends. We have a good pediatrician, but help on dealing with them and specific preemie issues would also help. As for understanding government financial programs, I wasn’t aware there are any! Thanks for the opportunity to win. When C was born 9/2009, there weren’t any preemie books readily available in stores, and I was too exhausted to look for and order any online.”

Thanks to everyone who left their comments and entered the giveaway.  The winner was chosen using an online random chooser tool.

Congratulations to Denise and I hope that you will all try again in our next giveaway!

Afton Mower About Afton Mower

After Mower (UT) lost her firstborn son at 21 weeks.  Her daughter was born a year and a half later at 27 weeks.  The NICU was overwhelming and isolating and it was through those two experiences she was led to found this social hub for parents to find the support they needed. Afton also gave birth to another daughter, born two days overdue after four months of strict bedrest. She believes it is a tender experience to hold a special baby in your arms when his spirit returns to his heavenly home, a miracle to watch tiny babies survive the risks of prematurity and a blessing to hold a healthy full-term baby after months of difficulty and sacrifices.
