Wow the forum has been really CRAZY over the past month. There are now 261 members and it is great to see so many join each month. The forum has been a great support for many parents like myself and everyday it is turning into a little online community. Members are becoming friends, meeting for lunch or just coffee (i am jealous that i cannot meet everyone) but that is what makes the forum such a great place, the diversity of the members and also the fact that members are from within Australia or afar.
I set up the forum with as many categories as possible to cover a wide range of main topics. From the gestation from when your baby was born to feeding, birth complications, milestone setback and delays which a lot of premature babies face, general chatter and game threads. The forum was set up not only for support but also to encourage friendship and communication for those who may live hours away from a town which is why i wanted the forum to showcase a range of areas not just premature baby related sections.
I encourage everyone to join! Many of the members have had premature babies born from 23 weeks to 36 weeks all due to different complications (pre-eclampsia seems to be in the running for the most cause of premature birth).
