During Pregnancy

Whilst many premature births occur quickly, for some there is a bit of time to get used to the idea. Multiple pregnancies and assisted fertility pregnancies have a higher risk of preterm birth, and some conditions that occur during a pregnancy may also lead a doctor to warn of a possible premature birth, giving you a little time to find out some information about what may happen to you and your baby.

Austprem provides support to those who are expecting a baby and are at risk of having a premature birth - we will rejoice with you if you make it to full term, and will provide information and personal experiences from our pregnancies and NICU experience if you don't make it that far.
