Trafford Publishing, 2005 - Biography & Autobiography - 168 pages

A Mother's Diary: How to Survive the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is a firsthand account of one woman's journey. It represents the struggle of thousands of women every year whose babies begin life in the N.I.C.U.

Menetra Hathorn writes the entire book from her perspective - a mother's point of view. She begins by introducing you, the reader, to her world and giving some background information about how her journey began. Next, you walk with her the rest of the way - through a slow and tedious hospitalization. Then, she names and discusses 10 strategies that will help you survive the N.I.C.U. (and beyond). Finally, she shares some valuable insight with relatives and friends while recommending a variety of ways that they can help.

A Mother's Diary: How to Survive the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit was written because Mrs. Hathorn was unable to find anything like it during her third child's 119-day hospitalization. She wanted to know that she wasn't alone, and she needed some common sense strategies she could implement to help save herself from drowning in a sea of grief, depression, and anxiety.
