    World Prematurity Day

    Today is World Prematurity Day! Please help us create awareness of the special needs of babies born too early. More than half of twins and almost all higher-order multiples are born with low birth weight. Preterm and low birth weight babies are at an increased risk of post-birth complications and long-term health care needs compared to babies born at term.
