Loved the focus on the emotions with life in the NICU
21 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was very moving. As a Preemie Mom, I was glad to see something that focused on the emotions and relationships connected to life in the NICU. We spent 143 days in the NICU with our 20 ounce son (who is now 5, happy and healthy!) and the experience totally changed all our lives and our relationships. Having to deal with life outside the NICU while your child is fighting for every breath is painful and this movie showed a little of that struggle to the audience. You really can't understand life in the NICU unless you have experienced it, but this book/movie gives others a glimpse of what the roller-coaster ride in the NICU is like. Too bad there can't be a movie/documentary done periodically to keep the technology and NICU current - with as fast as things change from year to year....
