Book Review: Preemie: Lessons in Love, Life and Motherhood
Preemie: Lessons in Love, Life and Motherhood
Preemie: Lessons in Love, Life and Motherhood by Kasey Matthews is a great book for anyone who has gone through a premature labor or knows someone who has. This book shows the emotional, physical, financial and psychological impacts that a pre-term baby can have on parents.
This book really allowed me to understand what mothers are feeling when they have to go through with a premature labor. It is an inspiring story of love and courage. Kasey Mathews is a phenomenal author and did an amazing job writing her experience out. She was in her early thirties and she had an amazing son, Tucker, who was only two when the baby was born. She has an amazing husband who stayed with her through the highs and the lows of her life, he was also trying to finish college and help remodel a house that they had just bought knowing they would need room for the new addition to their family.
Kasey was living a perfect life until she was sent into labor four months early, giving birth to a daughter only weighing 1 pound and 11 ounces, and only 11 inches long. Kasey was not ready to be a part of the “NICU” Family, and all she wanted was to have someone to talk to that knew what she was going through and how she felt, but she never had anyone. She wrote this book on behalf of all the mothers that are longing for that one person to talk to.
In her early thirties, Kasey Mathews had it all: a loving husband, a beautiful two-year-old son, and a second baby on the way. But what seemed a perfect life was shattered when she went into labor four months early, delivering her one-pound, eleven-ounce daughter, Andie.
The first time Kasey was wheeled into the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), nothing prepared her for what she saw: a tiny, fragile baby in a tangle of tubes and wires. All at once, Kasey was confronted with a new and terrifying reality that would test the limits of love, family, and motherhood.
In this riveting, honest, and often humorous memoir, Preemie chronicles the journey of one tiny baby’s tenacious struggle to hold on to life and the mother who ultimately grew with her.
