More Extreme Premature Babies are Surviving

Bradley Mattes   |   September 22, 2016

Extreme premature babies are a major health crisis around the world.  Little Emilia was born at twenty-six weeks, weighing only eight ounces.  But after nine months in the hospital, she went home with her parents.  New technology’s making it possible to save babies even younger.  A recent study in the New England Journal of Medicine revealed about a quarter of those born at just twenty-two weeks actually survive.  Many well-intentioned doctors don’t treat these babies because of the odds, but this is changing.  You and I can help get the word out because a baby’s life may literally depend upon it.  There’s a documented database of extreme premature babies who’ve survived.  Visit life issues dot org and click on the microphone icon to access it.  Then please share it widely.

More and more babies who are born extremely premature are surviving. Help us get the word out by visiting and sharing this website documenting their cases:
