Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

What is a Newborn and Premature Baby?

Babies in their first 28 days after birth are called newborns, and babies born before 37 weeks of gestation are called premature babies.

The first four weeks after birth are risky for newborn babies. In order to overcome this risky period and protect the health of the baby, it is most appropriate to have all births in a hospital with a neonatal intensive care unit.
