There are various reasons why your baby needs special care or to be kept in NICU. Nature has provided a time period of 40 weeks during which the baby grows, develops and feeds in the womb of the mother. Earlier born babies are too small and too immature to survive independently without being subjected to special care. The reason for this is that the premature babies are born with a low birth weight that means with low subcutaneous fat that leads to improper thermoregulation. Therefore, they cannot maintain their temperature.
Babies Need Support:
Hospital’s facilities with neonatal intensive care units can give particular care to infants with genuine health problems. They have special equipment and specially prepared specialists and medical caretakers who give all day and all night care to preterm babies who require additional help to keep warm, to inhale and to be fed, or who are extremely sick.
