Overall survival of babies born extremely preterm has improved in recent years, but evidence for improvements in longer term neurodevelopmental outcomes is limited Recent changes in obstetric care include how, when, and to whom to administer steroids, surfactant, and new treatments such as antenatal magnesium sulphate or delayed cord clamping and placental transfusion Active participation of parents in treatment may positively influence bonding as well as longer term outcomes for child and family Variability in provision of care for extreme preterm birth has an impact on morbidity and mortality outcomes Extreme preterm birth has a social impact, on mothers, fathers, children born preterm, and their families; the value of investing early in life to prevent later complications is now widely recognised Extreme preterm birth, defined as birth before 28 weeks gestational age (box 1),1 affects about two to five in every 1000 pregnancies, and varies slightly by country and by definitions used.
