Premature Babies as Young as 22 Weeks Old are Surviving More Frequently

Babies born extremely preterm, barely halfway through gestation, are living and thriving thanks not only to improvements in modern medical science but also to changing attitudes in the medical community. The British Association of Perinatal Medicine has taken note of these improvements regarding extremely preterm babies and is now recommending that babies born as early as 22 weeks’ gestation [bapm.org] should be actively cared for with lifesaving treatments.
