Sorry... I don't have any concrete resources, but this sure would be an excellent topic for an article in Mothering (ahem, are any of the Mothering mavens listening? )
You would have to scour the archives for this thread, but I recall that occasionally some mamas have posted about some of the natural parenting techniques, such as cranio-sacral therapy,that they used in the NICU.
One other consideration would be to hire a midwife just for maternal support during your pregnancy. Of course, you wouldn't leave your peri, but you may be able to find a midwife or doula who would see you for regular exams and offer you a more holistic and personal approach to your care. My midwife said that she would happily take this approach with me during my next pregnancy (assuming I'm high-risk).
I had the same question after my c-section and DS' NICU stay. I often wondered if mamas and babies who were high-risk even had a place in the natural parenting community, because it's so hard to find resources and support.
I'll search around or other resources. If anything comes up, I'll let y'all know!
