A difficult challenge for the medical staff at Botoşani Maternity Hospital, where a preterm baby measuring 720 grams was delivered on Sunday. After barely 24 weeks of pregnancy, the boy was delivered.
The infant, who was delivered on Sunday and weighed just 720 grams, was considered to be very premature.
At only 24 weeks, the newborn boy was born with a hand the size of an adult finger.
After stabilizing him, the infant was sent to a different maternity facility with a greater level of care.
Baby born prematurely weighing barely 720 grams
The child was transported by an ambulance, and was then placed in the care of neonatologists.
According to specialists, it happens frequently that pregnant women wait until after giving birth to visit the doctor, which considerably increases the risk of difficult deliveries or early births.
The lightest newborn delivered at this hospital weighed 580 grams.
The baby who weighted the most, on the other hand, was born in July 2008 and was slightly over 6 kilos.
