Abstract

INTRODUCTION: The "late preterm" term is used for premature births between 34 0/7 and 36 6/7 gestational week. Most premature babies are "late preterm" babies. Although anthropometric measurements are close to term infants, there is increased risk of mortality and morbidity. In this study, we aimed to investigate in the neonatal period problems of late preterm labor in the tertiary referral hospital.
