Half a million babies are born prematurely in the United States every year. In Fragile Beginnings, dive into the complex world of newborn intensive care, where brilliant but imperfect doctors do all they can to coax life into their tiny, injured patients. As a specialist in high-risk obstetrics and the father of a child born prematurely, Adam explores the profound questions raised by such fragile beginnings, both from the front lines of the NICU and from his daughter’s bedside.
