Mummy Concerns

Hey, thanks for this Article. I'm about 6 months pregnant now, and one of my friends recently gave birth 3 months early! Ever since, I've been freaked out about the possibility of it happening to me and how I would handle it if it did. Just because I wouldn't be prepared physically or emotionally. Any advice on how to get through the initial days were this to happen??
