Baby born at 34 weeks: any chance to survive?

My last baby was born at 34 weeks and she was completely healthy. We were very lucky that she didn't have any medical problems that they would expect a 34 week baby to have. It is common for a 34 week baby to need breathing assistance, a feeding tube, IV fluids, and other help.

Babies born at 34 weeks have a very high survival rate, over 90% but they usually have short term problems and need to stay in the NICU.

She got to room in with me and go home when I went home. She never needed treatment or a NICU stay.

That's amazing she went home with you, that must have been a relief.
