    Thank you for this blog! Do you know of any resource that compiles how many babies are born in the US at each week gestation? And then how many of those babies lived? My son was born at 23 weeks and I don’t know of very many 23 weekers (all of them I do know of are amazing)! But I’ve always been curious about the numbers…

    You have a very interesting and important blog – it really is an example to follow. I am grateful to you for information about the conference in Helsinki. I was there with a delegation from Ukraine neonatologists. There were plenty of interesting and necessary information for us. I would be grateful to you if you will have the ability and desire for personal communication.
