Anne Barbano's The Next Frontier

Title: Preemies
Guest: Jennifer Gunter MD
Recorded on: 09/16/2010


Dr. Jennifer Gunter, MD did what some people do every day; become pregnant and have babies. The only difference: she was pregnant with multiples (triplets) placing her at high risk for having premature births. Her experience of losing son Aiden at twenty-two and a half weeks and the birth of her remaining twins nearly a month later is a story that's both physical and emotional. In this interview, Jennifer, an OB-GYN, describes her intimate guide book for parents of premature babies that she subsequently wrote, 'The Preemie Primer'. Whether you have kids or not you will be riveted by the insight displayed here. And you won't think about a preemie again in the same way. (48 minutes)
