When is a baby considered “preterm” or “extremely preterm?” A normal pregnancy lasts about 40 weeks. Babies born before 37 weeks of pregnancy are called “preterm” or “premature.” Babies born before 28 weeks of pregnancy are considered extremely preterm. The earlier a baby is born, the less likely he or she is to survive. Those who do survive often have serious, sometimes long-term, health problems and disabilities.
