General & Family Physician 's  Response
premature babies are prone for bleeding in the brain as the capillaries are very fragile.
the condition you had during your pregnancy is very stressful and cause hypoxia in the foetus.
In the most severe cases, the condition can lead to disabilities including hydrocephalus and cerebral palsy. Intraventricular haemorrhages (IVH) are a condition in which the capillaries bleed into the baby's brain.

The more premature the baby, the more fragile the capillaries, meaning that haemorrhages are more likely to occur.
consult your pediatrician and get complete check up of the baby.
i hope i have answered your query.
take care
