premature babies

Babies can live outside the womb as early as 22 weeks, science shows

By Lilley: NaturalNews) A study recently published in the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) will undoubtedly add more controversy to the already heated subject of abortion; it was found that premature babies are surviving earlier outside of the womb -- specifically, at just 22 weeks. Furthermore, it was discovered that some of these children, with proper medical treatment, can go on to survive and live completely healthy lives.

Talking to premature babies may help them develop faster while in the the hospital

In the hospital, premature babies are usually sanctioned in a separate neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) room where they receive very little interaction and hear very little adult communication. Monitors and machines may be humming in the room, but these noises do little to help premature babies develop while they are separated from the attention, care and voice of their mother and others.
