What is preterm and low birth weight?
In the UK, around 50,000 infants are born preterm each year. Preterm is defined as infants born at or before 37 weeks of pregnancy. Infants who are born prematurely weigh much less than term infants and fall into one of the categories below. This is because a significant amount of the babys weight gain occurs between 36 and 40 weeks.
When should SMA Gold Prem 2 be used?
On the advice of your healthcare professional on discharge from hospital
