How to use "Premature" in context?

It is estimated that one in every four births in the United States is premature. This means that the baby has not reached full term- the average length of a pregnancy- and may still have health risks. Premature babies can suffer from health problems such as low oxygen levels, as well as serious complications such as respiratory distress syndrome, need medical attention earlier than premature babies living in developed countries. In the United States, the average baby born prematurely is born at 27 weeks gestation, though the National Center for Health Statistics reports that premature births can occur at a range of 24 weeks- almost full term- up to 39 weeks.
