What are the symptoms of premature birth?
If your baby is born prematurely, it means that he or she has not spent the regular amount of time inside the womb. This means that your baby may not be fully ready for life after birth. Some signs that your baby's time in the womb has been reduced include: being smaller in size and having a large head that is disproportionate to the body; having less rounded and sharper features; having thin or transparent skin; difficulty breathing; newborn jaundice; low body temperature after birth, and; a reduced ability to suck and swallow.
