early baby survival rate premature babies born at 22-24 weeks
A few years ago my cousin was born early at 23 weeks and it was a struggle to get a relative to follow the consultant around to try fight for this premature baby. As babies were only classed as viable at 24 weeks many hospital’s policies varied as if they continue giving support to keep these babies alive. National statistics from 2011 show about 30 per cent of babies born at 23 weeks survived. But Dr Ward Platt said he had known two babies born at 22 weeks to survive while about 60 per cent of babies born at 23 weeks at his hospital over the past six years lived.
Now more hospitals are more empowered to fight for premature babies born this early, it truly is a miracle.
