Babies born before the 37th week of pregnancy are called pre-term and have lower survival rate.

It is estimated that 20 million babies are born prematurely or with a low birth weight every year.
More than one million of these babies die on their first day of life, and nearly three million die within the first month of life according to Save the Children.
An estimated 450 premature babies die each hour.
Those babies who survive often suffer from serious ailments including diabetes and heart disease.
 
Premature babies have very little body fat and are unable to regulate body temperature.
