Segment 2: What premature birth can teach us about being human.
Sarah DiGregorio's story of giving birth early, at 28 weeks, and spending time in the neonatal intensive care unit with her daughter catapulted her into a world that was unfamiliar, so she started looking for answers to all her questions. Her new book is the result of that research and self-reflection.
