Pregnancy

Babies born prematurely may be at risk for delays in their fine and gross motor skills, cognitive abilities and language. To help identify these concerns in earlier stages, Goryeb Children’s Hospital offers a NICU Developmental Follow-Up Program designed for infants born sooner than 32 weeks or weighing less than 3 pounds, 4.9 ounces. Our team of professionals screens babies every three to six months until age 3 and refers parents to the appropriate specialists for treatment based on the results.
