Hi dear,
Preterm babies are prone for intraventricular hemorrhage due to fragile blood vessels. You can ask your dr about severity of hemorrhage. The more severe the bleeding, the more likely that it affects the development in the long run. You need to follow the baby regularly with your dr and check her development regularly.

Take care
