Premature babies

More than 3,000 babies born each year at the SJD Barcelona Children's Hospital. Many of them are born prematurely, meaning before 32 weeks of gestation. The goal of all of our pediatricians and researchers is to make sure these neonates grow and develop properly, and that they have no repercussions at any point in their lives.

Main lines of investigation

Diseases of fetal origin

Many conditions that appear in adulthood have their origin in the fetal period or in the first few years of life. Understanding how and why these occur is a crucial step towards prevention and treatment.

Postnatal feeding of premature babies

A high percentage of premature babies often fail to grow properly during their first few months outside of the womb.
