Caroline Wilson Wanted Image for Massey Studyis a post graduate student at Massey University completing a Master of Nursing Degree, and also a Registered Nurse working in a Neonatal Intensive Care Unit.  In her words:

  • I would like to invite caregivers of children who were born extremely prematurely to share their experiences of what it is like raising a prematurely born child who is now between 4 and 6 years old. 
  • This will involve an interview that will take around 1 hour.  I am interested in hearing about some of the challenges you face and the support services that are available to help you with these. 
  • Your name will be kept confidential. 
  • If you are interested in participating or hearing more about this study please contact me by phone, text or email:  021 252 9039 and
