Can a premature baby be as healthy as a child born normally? It is said that premature babies are not as good as normal babies in terms of physical and intellectual development. So what are the sequelae of premature babies? First, let's find out what is premature birth and what is the concept of premature birth?

In fact, the so-called premature delivery refers to the delivery between the 28th week of pregnancy and the 37th week of pregnancy (196 to 258 days). Premature birth accounts for 5% to 15% of the number of deliveries. Babies born during this period are collectively called premature babies

The shorter the gestational age, the smaller the baby's weight and the shorter the body length. Live births born before the 37th week of gestation are called premature or immature infants. Most of their birth weights are below 2,500g, and their head circumference is below 33cm. A small number of premature infants who weigh more than 2,500g and whose organ function and adaptability are poorer than those of term infants should still be given special care. Premature infants should be given special care due to insufficient placental function and other factors. Those who are below the 10th percentile or less than two standard deviations below the mean are referred to as being less than the gestational age (small children, mature children). The birth weights below 2,500g are collectively referred to as low birth weight children, and the birth weight is less than People with 1,500g are called very low birth weight infants, which include premature babies and those younger than the gestational age.
