Pre-term 33 wks

Jun 16th, 2017, 08:17 AM   #1
 
Is there any possibility that a baby born at 33-wk preterm will not undergo NICU and will be taken home immediately with her mom? Any idea?

Hi, I would say probably not I'm afraid... they are likely to be tiny and will probably need help with feeding and breathing x

I doubt it Hun will depend on birth weight and lung development xx my ds1 was born at 33 weeks weighing 2lb14 and spent 3 weeks in NICU, no breathing or health problems but just had to put the weight on xx good luck xx

I was 12wk early and I was in hospital till more or less my due date bit that was in the 80's! I suppose it depends on how developed the babies organs are. I think a safer zone is 37wk plus so baby would most likely be in hospiral for at least a month. X
