Everything happens in the Alfredo da Costa Maternity Hospital’s Intensive Care Unit (MAC). In MAC, in every year 6000 babies are born, about 6% of all country’s births. About 150 of newborns in MAC weight less than 1500 grams.
Meanwhile, the fate of the maternity-hospital is suspended as the portuguese economic crisis is pushing the Government to close the oldest working unit in Portugal.
