Prematurity Awareness Month: Preterm Labor Risk Factors and Prevention

November is Prematurity Awareness Month
In the United States, 1 out of 10 of babies are born preterm, meaning they are born before they have completed full development during 37 to 40 weeks of pregnancy. Preterm labor babies are more often born with a disability and can also suffer short and long-term health effects including Respiratory Distress Syndrome (RDS), Apnea, Bradycardia, Chronic Lung Disease/Bronchopulmonary Dysplasia (BPD), Jaundice, and others. Preterm labor is also the leading cause of infant mortality in the United States.
