My SIL to whom I am quite close went into premature labour yesterday at 32wks. They have given bubs steriods for the lungs and have been trying to stop labour. However, today they have decided to let bub come as he is getting distressed and they have been unable to stop dilation.
I went to visit her in the birth suite this morning and was very positive and tried to keep her distracted by talking about other things.
What I would like to know from other mothers of premmie's is what things did you find helpful and how best can I be supportive of her and the current events?
What interventions are likely to happen to a bub born at 32wks?
What should I or shouldn't I say?
thanks in advance.
