My niece was born with that. My sister had a c-section I think around 34-35 weeks and they basically put all of my nieces intestines in a bag and let them hang above her body so gravity would do the work and her bowels could go inside her body as naturally as possibly. Once everything was inside, they stitched the opening closed. I don't remember what prematurity issues she had but I do know she stayed in the NICU almost until her due date. She's 7 now, happy and healthy. :) good luck mama!
