Premature Infant

A baby born 3 or more weeks early is premature. Babies born early may have health problems. Premature babies may need to stay in the hospital until they can eat, breathe, and stay warm on their own.

Is it an emergency?

If you or someone in your care has chest pains, difficulty breathing, or severe bleeding, it could be a life-threatening emergency. Call 9-1-1 or the local emergency number immediately.
