More premature - reduced survival (survival rates increase over historical time)

Weeks Gestation Survival

21 weeks 0%

22 weeks 0-10%*

23 weeks 10-35%

24 weeks 40-70%

25 weeks 50-80%

26 weeks 80-90%

27 weeks >90%

30 weeks >95%

34 weeks >98%

A baby's chances for survival increases 3-4% per day between 23 and 24 weeks of gestation and about 2-3% per day between 24 and 26 weeks of gestation. After 26 weeks the rate of survival increases at a much slower rate because survival is high already.
