Empowered Preemie Moms: From NICU, to Newborn, and Beyond

Empowered Preemie Moms: From NICU, to Newborn, and Beyond

Shaana Berman

Price: FREE

This is an awesome, inspiring and emotional journey. A must read for any preemie parent. I highly recommend this book.

The experiences of preemie moms often detract sharply from the experiences of mothers who carry their babies to term. In fact, the surreal, clinical, and often traumatic things that preemie moms endure make their labor, delivery, and parenting scenarios seem almost otherworldly in comparison to those of “termie” mommas. The current work describes how one preemie mom, Shaana Berman, dealt with her own premature introduction to parenthood after developing HELLP syndrome. Her son, Jax, was delivered at 34 weeks, 5 days gestation, weighing just 3 pounds, 14 ounces. As a special education specialist, Dr. Berman was shocked and dismayed when her life began to parallel her career. The NICU stay was challenging, but arriving at home was also frightening. Among other things, Jax battled severe reflux, braphycephaly, and was termed failure to thrive.

Dr. Berman battled severe postpartum anxiety and depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and adrenal exhaustion in the aftermath of Jackson’s birth. As she shuttled her preemie to countless doctor appointments, turned away numerous invitations to parties, shunned visitors, and avoided the supermarket like the plague, the author became increasingly more isolated. One day, as Dr. Berman sat attached to a breast pump in the dead of the night, the former early childhood special education specialist began to wonder if other preemie moms were on a similar rollercoaster ride.

In order to explore this idea further, Dr. Berman developed an anonymous, online survey and posted it on several popular preemie discussion boards. To her surprise, over 50 preemie moms responded, telling their stories and confirming that preemie moms share a special bond. While every preemie mom walks a unique path with her family, there is kind of comfort that only camaraderie derived from trauma can bring. Sharing birth stories and challenges seems to be a vehicle that promotes bonding among preemie moms. Dr. Berman set out to document the stories these moms shared, in order to increase awareness regarding prematurity and the unique women’s and parenting issues that preemie moms face.

This book is divided into two sections. The first section relates the stories of ten preemie moms who had their babies during different stages of gestation (from 25-34.5 weeks). This organization is intentional, as the first thing a preemie mom often wants to share is their child’s gestational age and weight at birth. Of the 50 responses, specific stories were selectively included to portray a range of preemie ages, weights, birth scenarios, and outcomes.

Narratives were obtained by posting an anonymous survey on several preemie message boards, and on the author’s Facebook page. All names and identifying information were changed to protect privacy, and some narratives were edited for flow and clarity. The survey responses were sorted by gestational age, and then coded to extract common themes and experiences. Coding revealed several common core issues that arise during the preemie postnatal experience.

The second section of Empowered Preemie Moms outlines survival tips based on these commonalities. The work as a whole is intended to help preemie moms navigate their preemie rollercoaster rides and achieve a sense of power and control over their situations, rather than succumbing to feelings of isolation and anxiety.

How To Profit and Pay It Forward With Craigslist (How To Overcome)

How To Profit and Pay It Forward With Craigslist (How To Overcome)

Lee Beattie

Price: FREE

How to profit and pay it forward with craigslist or any classified ads site is what this book is intended to accomplish. During a recent move we discovered a hidden secret that was actually easier than I thought to accomplish.

This content is based on a real case study that we performed and decided we wanted to write an outline for what we saw to be very easy and duplicable actions that anyone can use to accomplish the same results. This book was based on one actual weekend where were proved our theory that we can add to our overall botton line and increase our overall wealth at the same time.

Many people are struggling to make extra money and we found these results allowed us to pay for all moving expenses. We decided it was very important to pass this information on because many people aren’t looking at the bottom line which is getting the best bang for your buck.

If you are looking for the most cost effective way to add to your overall bottom line and pay it forward in the process. So many people especially these days are looking for ways to make a little extra money. Well, we wrote this book to outline how to make a few extra dollars but also wrote this for people who aren’t looking at Craigslist as a way to buy and sell effectively.

We were mainly consumers for most of our experiences using Craigslist and eventually figured out a very solid way to make money, donate abundantly and at the end of the day satisfied with our efforts. So many people don’t look at classified ads as a way to get the most out of them effectively.

We found that we could use several benefits from craigslist and be able to truly help people especially those who are in need of a viable shopping solution as well. Again, we were consumers for most of our experiences on craigslist but turned seller for the sake of this case study and book.

Brains, Trains & Video Games: Living The Autism Life details the emotional, humorous and often profoundly insightful journey of an everyday family raising a child with autism. This is a book about life with Ewan – the center of one family’s universe and the gravity that holds them together. Far from being the stressor that causes this family to disintegrate, autism has made this family what it is today. A family that laughs more than it cries, and a family that eagerly awaits for the next Ewanism to spring forth from the lips of this solar system’s sun. Over the years we have built a bridge between his world and ours, his brain and ours, and his perspective and ours. Join us on the journey we’ve taken to help create a world of possibility for our son – a world filled with words, thoughts, ideas, and love.

Alicia Hart, author of Brains, Trains & Video Games, is a wife, mother and advocate for children and adults with autism spectrum disorder.

The first book, Brains, Trains & Video Games, details their life through infancy, early intervention, augmentative and alternative communication, feeding problems, medical care and preschool. The next book in the series, Foods, Moods & Isms, is about a single year in the life of this family – a year of great change, difficult obstacles and an ever changing view of life. Foods, Moods & Isms was released on March 8, 2013. For more updates, please visit The Autism Life or the Alicia Hart – Author Facebook page.

  1. Does anyone read the books, or at least skim through them, before they are posted on here? Because I finally got around to reading “How to Profit on Craigslist” and the book was so rambling and incoherent I couldn’t find any valuable information at all on my first read-through. All the other free ebooks I’ve read that I found from this blog have been good, but this one has made me wonder if there is anyone checking out these books before recommending them.

    • Hi Tiffany! Thanks for your comment. Sorry that ebook was disappointing! The ebooks we list are a combination of ebooks submitted (via our submission form) and ones we scour around on Amazon and find. We definitely don’t read every single ebook we post (we wouldn’t have time to post ebooks if we did!), but we do check out the descriptions and reviews to get an idea of what the ebooks are about and how they’ve been received.

      Looks like the Craigslist one got some bad reviews on Monday (after we had posted it – I believe we took a chance on it and posted it before it had reviews). Sorry about that! You definitely run into some snags when you’re recommending free ebooks. Sorry for the inconvenience!
