    For a baby to survive if they are born 4 months early? A girl i know was telling me her brother was born 4 months early and could fit in her dads hand, and he's alive and in full health, is this possible? it just seems abit unbelievable to me :shrug:

    In principle, the longer in the womb the better but my cousin's son was born at 22 weeks and is now a teenager. Every situation is different and it will all depend on what's been done and what can be done early to help the baby's chances...

    :) Good luck and hopefully - all will go well...

    My friend who is a MW says they have to do everything they can to save a baby from 24weeks on I think (or was it 26??) under that it is considering unlikely i think. So yes i bet its true x

    My fiance was born at 24 weeks & he is perfectly healthy.

    There's just more risks at that stage, so it depends what condition the baby is in, if anything can be done. Etc.
