These October releases are out now! Congratulations to Amy Brett, Russell Wate, Stacey Dighton and Peter Wise.
Twenty-Four Plus Six by Amy Brett
This heart-wrenching memoir shares the life-changing realities of having a baby born fifteen weeks too early.
Published on 24th October 2023, Twenty-Four Plus Six – A Family Journey Through Neonatal Care is a heart-rending, yet highly significant read.
Imparting the physical, emotional and psychological realities of her daughter being born fifteen weeks premature, Amy Brett uses her expertise as a non-fiction writer to bring her story to the attention of others, and to support the 100,000 other families each year who find themselves experiencing the tumultuous ups and downs of neonatal care.
A story of incredible courage and resilience, the author also shines a much-needed light on the inconsistencies of the neonatal medical system, and the unimaginable fallout that ensues when a family is affected by these fluctuations.
Against all odds, Amy brought her daughter home, but in writing her memoir, she breaks the taboos surrounding premature birth and highlights how the mental health of a mother can suffer indelible scars from a neonatal experience.
