Different cultures have different beliefs about low birth weight babies and premature births. The difference in these beliefs is usually based on how cultures are exposed to information. In these cultures, it is important to note that access to information is often different. This is based on the fact that different cultures have different beliefs about how education matters, which means there is a big difference in how they perceive life. In this sense, different ethnic and cultural groups will have different perceptions about low birth weight infants and preterm births. The white-black disparity in low birth weight in the United States is dazzling and persistent. (In 2000) 13% of babies born to black mothers were low birth weight, compared with 6.5% of white-born babies. The two-to-one disparity between blacks and whites has persisted for more than forty years, exists in most maternal age ranges, can not be explained by differences in multiple birth rates, and can not be explained only By socioeconomic status. Black mothers were 63% more likely to have preterm deliveries than white mothers.


 When a child is born with an extremely low birth weight, he tends to develop problems during his growth. This is mainly because the way children are born determines their growth and development. When an infant has an extremely low birth weight, then it means that the child’s brain development may be affected, which could lead to serious health problems in the future Extremely low birth weight among babies also leads to problems with the family emotionally. The family may be concerned about your baby’s safety and whether they will survive. The parents of the baby are also worried about what they did not do as parents, an aspect that brings confusion in the family.

Here is demonstrated how the use high risk of SOS is common, identifiable neonatal risk factors that is associated with neurodevelopmental impairment. Extremely premature survivors have a substantial need for community support regardless of their level of disability. The  urgency to improve the integral delivery of family-based and community-centered services.


 Health centers can be of great help when it comes to providing support services to families who have had preterm birth. We recognize that for all the valuable contributions to prenatal care, maternal and child health is one of the most important fields of primary care. From the medical point of view, the purpose of prenatal care is to diagnose and treat a variety of medical conditions that affect the mother and the fetus. The content of prenatal care visits should vary depending on the risk status of the pregnant woman and her fetus. Doctors and nurses will be able to provide the much needed support services to ensure that the family is not affected.
