Abstract :

 There has been a lot of interest in the late preterm infants in the recent years. Due to the built in assumption of the late preterm infants as the term infants, these babies are roomed in with the mother immediately after delivery and are being discharged as the full term infants. Studies revealed that late preterm infants are at risk of morbidity .The most common morbidities observed in the late preterm infants were respiratory distress, hypoglycaemia, sepsis and hyperbilirubinemia. This study is being done to assess variables such as respiratory distress, hypoglycaemia, probable and proven sepsis and hyperbilirubinemia, in the first week of life, and the risk of these morbidities as the gestational age regresses compared to the full term newborns .It also focuses on the associated maternal complications.
