It’s natural for preemies to experience short-term developmental problems
Before we enumerate and explain the possible long-term effects of premature birth, let’s first emphasize that short-term health concerns are expected among preemies. These health concerns mostly depend on how early your baby is born.
Late preterm babies or those born at 34 to 36 weeks may have developed organs.
However, they may still experience breathing and developmental difficulties. The highest risk occurs to extremely premature neonates, especially when they have particularly low-birth weight.
