– Very preterm (28 to 32 weeks)
– Moderate to late preterm (32 to 37 weeks).

Major Contributors to Premature

Pregnancies complicated by diabetes and poor glycemic ( sugar) control are associated with a high incidence of prematurity, macrosomia ( larger than average) , malformation, fetal death, and neonatal death.

Management of Premature Babies
1. Intensive care for your premature baby
2. Sensors may monitor your baby’s blood pressure, heart rate, breathing and temperature,
3. A ventilator may be used to help your baby breathe.
4. The neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) or special care nursery provides round-the-clock care for your premature baby.

Breast milk is nutritious and aids in the growth and development of your premature baby. It can be easily digested when compared to formula milk.
