Q:

How much chances of survival is for premature baby from 27th week onwards? I have a short cervix so afraid though doctor gave me duvadilan 40 mg. My 27th week started from today.

Amita, don't worry. With a short cervix bed rest is a must. Try to take rest and avoid stress. Also your doctor may suggest you some safe steroids for lung maturity of your baby so that he/she can fight out well in case of prematurity. Discuss with your doc about this and have faith in God. Premature kids can survive very well too. They may spend some days in NICU but that's only for their good. For now, you must stay calm and positive and take all the necessary precautions to reach to a full term. All the best

contact healthy mother hyderabad and birth village cochin they can guide u. be sure that where u birth support full access for u to the baby and practices kangaroo care. any hospitals that restrict a mothers access to pre mature babies is not safe.

Hi I completely agree with charu..how much is ur C.L measure?

Amita

It was 2.3 cm at 21 weeks. Dr. refused to do another scan so I don't know how much it is now.

See, that cervical length might improve as the weeks progress.So don't worry at all..be positive..
