World Premature Day

Vila Central Hospital commemorates World Premature Day

INCU Head Nurse, Angeline Namu, said it is a celebration to raise awareness about the dangers of premature births.

Namu added that the day was initiated by the European Foundation Care for Newborn Infants (EFCNI) in 2008 along with other European parenting organizations.

She explained that premature birth refers to babies born about 35 weeks before their due date with low weight below the minimum which is 2.5kg.
