Premature Babies – The importance of early intervention physiotherapy

Anyone who knows me or has followed me in the past will be well aware that I have a mantra that “Early Intervention is the key”. Every time I see a baby who has been born prematurely this belief is reconfirmed. I was happy to see the experts at NICE (The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence) in the UK are agreeing and implementing this. I hope this article is of interest to any parent out there who has a child born prematurely. Please click on the picture to read this and feel free to contact me with comments or questions.
