Families links and resources
We at PLS envisage a brighter future for preterm babies and their families. Our aim is to give babies born extremely prematurely the best chance of survival and growth.
Preterm birth can negatively impact families and caregivers. Not only are there emotional and physical stresses, but also the financial strain of NICU care and lifetime care of children with long-term effects such as cerebral palsy, learning disability, problems with concentration or hyperactivity, autism spectrum disorder, feeding difficulties.
On this page, you will find a collection of resources for families.
