Prematurity can lead to lifelong health consequences such as cerebral palsy, breathing problems as well as hearing and vision loss. In addition, it can cost 10 times more to care for a premature baby than a full-term delivery.
Did you know that 15 million babies are born too soon worldwide, and 1 million of these babies don’t survive?
