Effect of extremely low birth weight babies on the family and community

QUESTION # 1.

(TWO PAGES SINGLE-SPACED) 

Describe the effect of extremely low birth weight babies on the family and community. Consider short-term and long-term impacts, socioeconomic implications, the need for ongoing care, and comorbidities associated with prematurity.

Explain how disparities relative to ethnic and cultural groups may contribute to low birth weight babies. Identify one support service within your community to assist with preterm infants and their families and explain how the service adequately addresses the needs of the community, or a population in your community. Provide the link to the resource in your post.

Below is a table you can use for the first Discussion question to streamline and hopefully decrease the time spent on your post. These are the areas I will be using to evaluate your post. You may post in narrative or use a list format as well. Be sure to cite your sources and include references with links.

Remember that paraphrasing is preferred any qoutes used should be expanaded on and correctly cited ( Use your own words, it is way less work) . This will be the expectation for each Discussion question.

Any outside sources used must be scholarly and current. Posts that use consumer web sites or sources over 10 years old will lose points in writing and APA.
