Quoting Crazzzy Mel:" How normal is it for preemies to have brain bleeds and what are the risks? my niece has a small brain bleed but the nurse didn't really say what it will cause or the risks of it.."
It's pretty common for preemies (depending on gestation) to have a brain bleed and sometimes even multiples. There's no telling what the effects will be because it depends on severity and location. It could be nothing and cause no problems or it could be something and cause anything from minor motor skill issues to severe mental retardation.
