Not all babies born prematurely before 35 weeks of pregnancy will have long-term consequences. However, there are some complications that can arise.
For example, some premature babies suffer from shortness of breath or the well-known respiratory distress syndrome. In addition, apnea and intraventricular hemorrhages can also be a consequence of preterm delivery.
The newborn may present arterial hypotension during the first months of life. These babies are more prone to pneumonia because their defense system is not yet mature.
