November 17 is World Prematurity Day, a day set aside to raise awareness of preterm babies and highlight the special care they require to survive.
Statistics show one in ten babies world-wide is born premature and each year some 15 million are born pre-term. In Cayman we have devoted personnel from doctors to various therapists who work with these babies giving them a fighting chance to grow and develop as a normal child would.
Dr Earl Robinson, Clinical Head at the HSA Pediatrics Department says caring for premature babies is always intensive.

“In that way, it always, is yes a strain but at the same time when these babies pull through and do well. It brings a level of satisfaction that all your hard work was not in vain,” Dr Robinson says.

And the HSA is marking … World Prematurity Day, offering free development checks for all babies born before 34 weeks, but not yet 18 months old.
