The project awarded this year, Earlybaby.info, is the first online platform of its kind in Bulgaria and Europe and a comprehensive handbook for parents of premature infants -"Everything about premature babies."

Unfortunately despite the proper monitoring of pregnancy and the preventive measures this could happen to anyone. Earlybaby.info platform offers fast and easy access to information, it is available to all those who are related to the care of premature babies and helps parents, for whom overcoming this challenge requires a lot of strength and support in tough moments. Through this new online platform and the manual "Everything about premature babies" parents have the opportunity to consult experts and find in the easiest, fastest and most affordable way the necessary information about their children.
