The Touching Moment A Mom Cuddles Her Premature Baby For The First Time

Holding your firstborn is a special, touching moment that gives your heart a magical feeling. It’s hard to describe the emotion if you haven’t experienced it yourself. Sometimes the first hug between mom and baby happens just moments after the little one takes its first breaths, other times the hug has to wait. Many babies are born too early, and this puts their lives at ʀɪsᴋ. They need special, delicate care. Fragile creatures, not yet ready for the harsh world…

Premature babies are too small and too immature to survive on their own without special care. A premature baby can weigh from about 600 to 2500 grams, and there are rare cases of surviving children weighing less than 500 grams. Their height is usually between 35 and 45 cm. As soon as they are born, a series of care begins for them, the greatest merits for their survival are always the skills of neonatologists. But, of course, also the will to live stored in the small body.

According to the definition of the World Health Organization, a premature child is a child born prematurely, before the completion of the 37th week of the mother’s pregnancy.

What happens when your baby arrives at 26 weeks gestation? Yes, the first hug has been postponed – until it is safe to do so.
