Abstract :

 Premature infant is an infant who was born before the end of 37th week of pregnancy. Due to some complications

associated prematurity, these infants need to hospitalize in Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU). In recent years, factors
such as assisted reproductive technology, old age pregnancy, advanced ante/postnatal diagnosis and treatments cause a rise in preterm birth rate.
The rate of preterm birth in 2005 was reported 12.9 million births (9.6%) worldwide and about 11 million (85%) in Africa and Asia
The births of a premature and critically sick infant make parents experience a very stressful situation. These stress and tension may relate to lack of
awareness and knowledge in care and interaction with premature infants.
