We Need to Talk About Prematurity

New book by Emilia Afrange was published in English and Portuguese

The book “We Need to Talk About Prematurity” is the result of the work developed by Emilia Afrange at the Outpatient Clinic for Prematurely-Born Children at the São Paulo School of Medicine of the Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP), where children and adolescents born prematurely up to the age of 20 are assisted by a multidisciplinary team. Most of them are at high risk of biological, psychological, and social complications.

In this publication, the relevant aspects of prematurity are presented, ending with the psychological issues that the author knows in depth and shares with readers, providing them with a very interesting and pleasant text, which will certainly contribute to the dissemination of this theme.
