Resources to help you better understand and explain prematurity

If you are the parent of a preemie, you can order the following publications free of charge.

Healthcare professionals and centres can purchase them online.

We receive many requests for documents – several dozen per month – and we’re very proud to provide them for the parents’ benefit. Printing and shipping costs are high, préma-québec’s financial means are limited, a donation to help us would be appreciated and will enable us to continue to provide the best possible services to parents of preemies.

Thank you for helping us to help others!
