premature babies what care do they get
premature babies in the uk are looked after in neonatal units in the first instance. It's part of the maternity unit. There are three sections of a neonatal unit that premature babies will be cared for in. The NICU, the HDU and the SCBU. The more premature these babies are born at means they will stay in hospital the longest. Not every hospital has all three. It's been known for a hospital NICU to be full or they don't have a Nicu and just have two departments the HDU or SCBU.
The larger the hospital the more likely they will have all three. Sometimes a mum will stay at the hospital she delivered at and if her baby needs extra care and needs more 1-1 nursing care. It could be sent by ambulance to the nearest hospital that does have a NICU.
A premature baby can now survive from 22 weeks. This is the earliest they can be born at that medical staff will intervene if they show signs of life. A few years ago it was 24 weeks that the nursing staff would help these babies born too soon. Before this many weeks gestation and their tiny bodies just wouldn't cope.
