Pre-term birth is the leading cause of newborn death. All Pre term babies are at risk of serious health issues such as newborn jaundice, breathing difficulties, feeding problems and other brain functions.
Pre term babies also can suffer life long effects such as learning difficulties, behavioral and social-emotional problems, increased risk of conditions such as ADHD (Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder), increased risk of SIDS (sudden Infant Death Syndrome). So it is my request to you all to remain fit and healthy through your pregnancy and avoid giving birth before 37th week as far as medically possible.
By chance you have delivered a baby before 37th week, ensure baby gets your breast milk, carry baby skin to skin as many times you are allowed to, be present to sooth your baby. If you are unable to breastfeed, find a donor who can give her breast milk. And if thats not happening, then next best choice is to opt for a formula milk over any animal milk.
