BOTH PARENTS AND BABIES CELEBRATE WORLD PREMATURITY DAY TODAY

The staff members of the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit of the Hospital Particular in Gambelas, celebrated World Prematurity Day with parents and babies by sharing a coffee break with the parents and offering the babies a small gift.

 

It was a moment of recalling shared experiences with good humour some more uncertain and distressing than others, but today all remembered with the joy of holding a super hero. 

 

Approximately 9000 premature babies are born in Portugal each year, representing 10% of all births.  In spite of the technological and scientific evolution, prematurity is still responsible for one third of child deaths.
