Are you one of those moms who wants a premie?

I don't, I just know there are some moms out there who think having a premie would be better than going full-term. What do you think of those moms?

  • That is terrible for a mother to want a preemie, the risks, possible long term health complications and even death... No way!!!!

  • my baby was 3 weeks early but not considered premature, I was very lucky she came out healthy with no problems. I wasn't a mom who wanted her to come early she just decided to! She wanted to see the world =)

  • I have never met a owman that WANTED her baby to be a premie

    pp 3 weeks early is considered full term. 37 weeks is now "' full term"

  • I have never heard of any woman wanting that. I don't believe that any woman would want a preemie. Why would she?

  • i just remembering wanting him out!!! he was a month early but did fine with the help of the hospital. i didn't want him hurt but i couldn't go on living like that! his biggest problem was he had to go through withdrawl which meant an iv for four days. i would've much rather had him healthy and ready to come home that day! i know i was ready to go home and just chill out.

  • i think that is just like one woman out of 100,000 so it's such a small small group of people...

    i do think it's sad when people get induced before their due date just because of the risks involved that moms seem to not know about or not to take seriously. that's not "premie" but it can end up so if the due date was off
