My Garden of Flowers takes the daunting mystery out of the NICU experience, providing information and reassurance to worried parents that their critically ill infants will typically grow to adulthood and lead normal, healthy lives. It is full practical advice, information on common problems of babies in the NICU, charts, checklists, and coping tips - a priceless resource to help parents care for their precious bundles while in the NICU and when they come home.
“My Garden of Flowers is a unique book documenting the career of a remarkable first-generation neonatologist. Dr Kaur has captured the history of neonatology together with the trials and triumphs of her NICU patients…this is a fantastic resource for families and healthcare providers.”
—Avroy Fanaroff, MD, Emeritus Eliza Henry Barnes Professor of Neonatology, Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, Emeritus Professor of Pediatrics, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, Cleveland, Ohio
“Beautifully written and illustrated, My Garden of Flowers recounts the NICU experiences of parents whose infants received care from Dr. Manjeet Kaur. The parents’ stories are uplifting, and I encourage all care providers who work in the NICU to read them.
—Richard A. Polin, MD, Director, Division of Neonatology, New York Presbyterian Hospital, Professor of Pediatrics, Columbia University, New York
“As the mother of a micro-preemie, I was profoundly touched by My Garden of Flowers. It will provide great hope and reassurance to new NICU families. I founded Hand to Hold to ensure that NICU families know they’re not alone on their journey. Through her book, Dr. Kaur shares the same message. There is great comfort in knowing others have endured, overcome, and thrived after such traumatic birth experiences. Dr Kaur has been and will continue to be a blessing to all who’ve been in her care as well as to those who now find ease and hope in her book.”
—Kelli Kelley, NICU Graduate Mom, Founder and Executive Director, Hand to Hold
“My Garden of Flowers is truly what every NICU family needs to know. As a nurse who has worked in NICUs for over two decades, I’m constantly providing education and reassurance, but often it’s too much for parents to assimilate at once. This book will reinforce and remind parents of what we are trying to convey. It’s the perfect blend of information, support, and hope. I recommend it to everyone who has a baby in the NICU or knows someone who does.”
