Today is #WorldPrematurityDay
I want to share some data and thoughts with you. First of all, we have to stop sanitizing the experience of prematurity.…
We must discuss the facts. Worldwide prematurity is the number one cause of death in the first month of life and the 2nd leading cause of death for children < 5 years. How this isn't being discussed daily by our so called "pro-life" government says it all.
1 in 10 births in the United States are premature. While most are what we call late preterm births (34 weeks to 36 weeks and 6 days) and they do have fewer complications than babies born very early, they have more complications than babies born at term.

Approximately 1 in 10 of all babies born globally are preterm - born alive before 37 weeks of pregnancy

@WHOSEARO @WHOWPRO @pahowho @WHOEMRO @WHOAFRO @WHO_Europe Prematurity is the leading cause of death worldwide for children below 5 years of age.
Three-quarters of these deaths could be prevented with the right care during pregnancy and during and after birth

A newborn’s chances of surviving and thriving largely depend on where they are born.

💔In the poorest countries, half of those born at or before 32 weeks will lose their life
