NICU- the best place for preemies
Preemies, born before complete maturation, usually require specialized assistance in breathing or maintaining the body temperature. The best place for a delivery is a hospital with Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU), equipped with all necessary resuscitative and rehabilitative measures.2
After the premature birth
Babies born before 37 weeks are immediately moved to the NICU for observation and specialized care. Accustomed to the maternal environment inside the womb, the baby is suddenly exposed to the external environment. This is the time when certain birth defects and complications of prematurity become apparent, and proper measures are taken.
