Preemie babies are those who are born at week 35th of pregnancy or sooner. There exist certain signs that may be an indicator of preterm birth.
After labor, the newborn requires long-term care, specially during his or her first months of life. It may be challenging, but also highly rewarding.
Here you shall find a clarification of the different stages of fetal growth, from the very first stage, called zygote, to the last phase, in which it is known as fetus. It will be called this way up until childbirth.
In this moment many internal organs of the future baby are in development. The fifth month of pregnancy lasts from the 17th week of gestation to the 20th.
If it has not happened before, childbirth should take place during this week. If after week 42 of pregnancy the child has not yet been born, the doctor will induce the labour.
