Cherishing Early Moments
Written by Paige Bautz, this book celebrates the tender first moments with preemies in the NICU. It acknowledges the fear while embracing the beauty of every child born into the world, offering a hopeful reflection on the NICU experience.
No parent expects their child to end up in the NICU, making it an isolating experience. Despite the challenges, this book highlights the unexpected moments of togetherness and connection found in the quiet of the NICU.
Inspired by her daughter Presley, born 7 weeks premature, author Paige Bautz crafted this book as a testament to hope. I'm honoured to have illustrated Presley's 7-week NICU journey of strength, making this FriesenPress collaboration a poignant tale of resilience.
