In brief: How premi???

All premi's do not generate the same survival rates.
Those below 26 weeks have much worse outlook than those at 34 and above.Yet even those born close to term can have devastating complications in labor/delivery or in the nursery. If you have a case in mind please submit more information in a separate question.

In brief: 10-99 %

It really depends on how premature they are.
With every week they stay inside the mom, their stay in the intensive care unit goes down by several weeks and their survival rates rise significantly.
