What are the chances of a premature baby surviving with being healthy?

The baby was born at 7 months. I dont know exactly the weeks. My uncle and his baby momma are both drug addicts. She already has 4 children , one mentally retarded. Is there a chance that the bay can survive and live healthy? I mean this is my cousin and all even under the circumstances.
Another thing. He has 3 kids of his own. Lives with momma in a 2 bedroom apartment. She draws social security. They both barely finished high school. so they are both also pretty stupid.

    7 months means 30 or 31 weeks about. Chances are great that the baby will be fine.

    it depends on if and what drugs were used during pregnancy or conception.

    My daughter was born at 25 weeks (just started my 3rd trimester) she only weighed 1 lb 10oz.
    She is now 7 years old and you would never know that she
    was born a preemie. So the answer to your question is yes with proper health care and proper care at home.

    It all depends. Is the baby addicted to any drugs. A friend of mine adotped a baby that was aditicted to coke, and he is so smart. But he has mental problems like he has his days and nights confused. He has to have counsling. He can stay up for a week at a time, and HE is four. I have never seen such a stron willed kid, but In all honesty it all depends on how bad, or if the baby is adticted to anything. The baby prabably has to stay a long time in the hospital to.

    I did. My mom wasn’t a drug addict, she had a condition called placenta previa. I was born at 27 weeks which is almost 7 months. I was in an incubator for 30 days, and my lungs collapsed twice. I stopped breathing at home and had to be revived in the ambulance. I almost died several times.

    This was 1979. Medical technology has come a very long way since then. There’s always a chance the baby might be ok. I don’t know your cousin’s particular circumstances. I just know I survived when the doctors told my mom I wouldn’t.

    The chances for survival are good, but on the down side you said they are drug addicts and the side effects from that could show up now or years down the line as behavioural problems or health problems. It’s a shame that people can have so little regard for a new life. Good luck.

    My daughter was born at 28 weeks, 2 lbs. 3 oz., she was healthy at birth but they started feeding her too early so she developed NEC, air bubbles in the intestines, I have never done a drug in my life she just came early. Anyway after finally having to have surgery to repair the damaged intestine from the air bubbles, she was released from the hospital a week before my original due date and she is 10 now, she is thriving she is a petite little thing but I am unsure if that is due to prematurity or genes. So yes it is possible to survive given she is given the proper care.

    my daughter was born two months premature and is in second grade this year. Its scary as hell and is very hard for every one at first. The parents must clean up their act and focus on the newborn. Most premature children have lots of problems and will be behind other children of the same age for some time. Follow all the doctors advice and make sure that they take the child to all the doctor appointments. There will be lots of different doctors to see. Have hope and never take no for an answer.

    Good luck!!

    I will pray for the baby. Your cousin and his girlfriend need to stop having babies. I hope you can learn from their mistakes. Good Luck.
