It is widely known that former preemies are more likely than full term babies to suffer from learning deficits or learning disabilities at school. Up to 45 percent of infants weighing less than 3 1/4 pounds at birth have one or more abnormalities on testing at school age. It's usually not possible to predict at the time of discharge or during early development who might develop these difficulties. Common problems include Coordination problems like Difficulty writing, drawing, or doing jigsaw puzzles. Language problems such as Difficulty following directions, learning to read, or remembering words. they may also have thinking problems pertaining to Difficulty with memory, spatial relationships, or abstract concepts.
while these facts are known to most of us the video i have posted shows another story. giving birth to children as little as a week early puts that baby more at risk, than full term babies, to develop learning disabilities of deficits. While the numbers aren't as staggering as preemies that are months early it still raises a question about inducing pregnancy slightly early in seemingly healthy babies. Should it be allowed if not necessary?
