Prena's Mission: Safeguarding infants by reducing the numbers of tragedies associated with preterm birth

 

"There's no tragedy in life like the death of a child. Things never get back to the way they were."

     -  President Dwight David Eisenhower

The Impact of Time

The time that a fetus spends in its mother's  womb is critical to its survival.  At 23 weeks of gestational age a fetus has only a 30% chance of survival. The odds of survival increase by 4% per additional day that the fetus remains in the womb  through the second trimester and 1-2%  thereafter.
