Abstract

Susan Ireland studied the provision of care for periviable babies in North Queensland. Despite the pessimism from health care professionals about offering this care, parents were mostly appreciative and coped with subsequent disabilities, contextualising them in the baby's struggle for survival. Parents who regret the care provided voiced perinatal concerns, which, if heeded would have resulted in redirection of care. Findings from this study have led to changes in practise.
