To date, research has highlighted the health risks of premature infants born before 32 weeks. However, the latest research by British scientists, birth of a few weeks before the birth of the baby may cause some health risks revealed.
Should be taken to regular check
Within the scope of the research published in the British Medical Journal, 14 thousand babies were observed for 5 years. According to the results, it is necessary to pay extra attention to the health of babies born before 39 weeks. Because these babies have a higher risk of developing asthma and similar diseases than children born in time. Experts, however, underline that parents should not be concerned.
However, it is advisable to take premature children to regular check-ups until the age of 5, even for a few weeks. Health institutions should take care not only of premature babies taken into intensive care, but also all babies born before the day.
