My baby is at risk of being born premature or sick

Knowing that your baby is more likely to need to spend some time in neonatal care can feel frightening. Look below for some suggested information and options for support.

Before your baby is born

Our information about pregnancy may help you know what to expect and to be as prepared as possible.

What will it be like on the neonatal unit?

You might want to know more about the unit and who will be there to care for you and your baby. It might also help you to know some of the medical terms you might hear on the unit.

Information about medical conditions

The Bliss website has easy-to-understand information covering many conditions experienced by premature and sick babies, put-together by parents and medical professionals.

If you have been told your baby will need treatment or support for a medical condition, there may also be a specialist organisation who can help you.
