Question:

Can a baby be born at 26 weeks and be okay?

Answer:

Babies born between 22 and 25 weeks' gestation have high mortality rates, and if they do survive, many have lifelong disabilities, such as hearing loss, blindness and cerebral palsy. Still, others survive and reach adulthood, seemingly unaffected by their early birth. A baby born at 22 weeks can survive. AnswerParty back soon.
