In brief: Less than 32 weeks

The younger the baby at birth (gestational age), the chances for ivh increase.
Usually >32 weeks, the ivh potential drops down.

In brief: IVH

The risk of ivh increases significantly if the premature birth occurs before 32 weeks of gestation (a full term baby is born at 40 weeks) or earlier.
