How is premature birth treated?
Depending on the initial health of your premature baby, specialized supportive care will be offered by your hospital and doctors in a neonatal intensive care unit. Some of the support and treatment can include placing your baby in an incubator and continuing the monitoring of their vital signs. They may also use a feeding tube for food and nutrients and receive any medications, blood transfusions or surgery that is required.
