The survival rate is very high that far along. As you may know, my SIL just had her baby August 4th and Landon (my nephew) was 7 weeks early. He had to stay in the NICU for 3 weeks, but he's home now. Plus, she didn't get the steroid injection, so your neice will be fine, I'm sure of it. I know how scary is though b/c of my SIL's situation and b/c Avery was 4 weeks early himself. Just tell her to be strong and know that her little baby will be home with her soon enough. and let us know how it all goes!

Check out the Preemie information sticky thread. There is a link on survival rates. I believe at that gestation, the survivability is greater than 97 or 98%. There has to be a seious issue (most likely a birth defect) that would cause the child to die at this point.

However, steroid shots may help limit vent/oxygen time, if the lungs are not yet mature.

At 24 weeks it is 75 % and goes up from ther. At 35 weeks I think the rate is around 95% depending on any conditions.

oh yeah, extremely good. It's like 90% at 30 wks, which is what the boys were.

Ryan was a 31.4 weeker, and like most of our preemes he was small!!! Tell her to do lots of loving and talking to the baby... and any skin to skin she can!!!
