A baby is considered premature when it is born before 37 weeks gestation. In Canada, one in 13 children comes into the world early, while in the United States one in eight is too.

Red Méthot, a Canadian photographer and student, is the father of two premature children, which motivated him to carry out his school project focused on children who are born before the end of their gestation cycle. “My son was born at 29 weeks and my daughter was born at 33. These are the kind of photographs I wish I had seen when my children were born – they’ve been through all of this and they’re doing really well now,” she said.

Méthot affirms that although not all the life stories of children born prematurely end happily, the truth is that those who manage to survive do so fully, like normal children.
