We've all heard the term 'Premmie" and we've seen the little babies in the Special Care nurseries with their naso-gastric tubes, little caps on their heads and surrounded by monitors. It's a frightening image but sometimes it always seems to happen to someone else - until it doesn't.

This podcast is all about defining what prematurity is. It covers:

- The known reasons for why a baby comes early.

- The signs that your baby might be coming early.

- The treatment your baby would need if they are born early

- The current medical thinking about preventing prematurity.

We also talk about what we can all do to support mums of preterm babies.
