A family friends daughter in law gave birth to twins at just 28 weeks last week. They are 2.4lbs and 2.6lbs. What are the chances of survival? I thought it was pretty good these days providing they don't get an infection or similar nasty
Oh that is so good to hear! I'm really hoping they will be ok. Yeah they must be so tidgey!!! I'm waiting for an update from my Mum so fingers crossed for good news! It's amazing that they have such a high rate of survival . Mum was in the hospital from the beginning of labour so I'm assuming they pumped her full of steriods to help their lungs mature. They're in the best place, that's for sure!
yes I know of twins born at 28 weeks. they are now coming up for 2 and are doing brilliantly. They took a bit longer to sit/walk etc but are both healthy happy little boys. Congratulations to your friend and I'm sure they will be fine
ds2 was born at 28wks the survival rate is around 80-90% I believe. I'm not sure if the figures are different for twins?
They are good weights fro twins of that gestation.
Congratulations & best wishes to your friends
