In brief: Depends

It depends mostly on how premature they were.
Babies who were born around 24 weeks have the highest risks of infections, eye problems, breathing problems, developmental problems. Each week that the baby spends inside the mom, decreases the amount of time they spend in the intensive care unit and the problems they face later.
