“Premature birth is a leading cause of death among children under five years old. But with the right care and support, these tiny fighters can survive and thrive,” she wrote.
In the article, Chopra also recalled her own experiences growing up as a premature baby and the challenges she faced. She also spoke about the importance of providing support and resources for families of premature babies.
“As a premature baby, I faced many challenges growing up. I was small for my age and always the last to be picked for sports teams. But my parents never treated me differently and always encouraged me to follow my dreams,” Chopra wrote.
