The Risks of premature births

Babies born too early are more vulnerable to long term health problems of brain, the lungs, hearing and vision and A baby born before 37-39 weeks of pregnancy is considered premature and  today on Sakhisizwe, Building the Nation, Bou Die Nasie we had Dr. Ricky Dippenaar a Certified Neonatologist,
Head of Department of Neonatology for Netcare Blaauwberg & Netcare N1 City Hospital.

We talked about the risks of premature birth, what parents need to know about premature babies and what they should do to sustain and maintain a health of premature babies, lastly we talked about how the parents should apply the proper health care of premature babies, the he also explain that it is important to know that in most of premmie births there is nothing a Mum could have done to prevent it but pregnant women should take care of themselves during pregnancy and get regular antenatal care at the recommended stages and manage weight gain.
