VWC Rmom logoBy: Virginia Women’s Center
November is prematurity awareness month. In the U.S., 1 out of 8 babies is born prematurely. Premature birth is any birth that occurs before 37 completed weeks of pregnancy. Preterm babies account for a large proportion of infant deaths. More infants die from preterm-related problems than from any other single cause.
Preterm labor and delivery can happen to any woman. Learn more about the warning signs of preterm labor here by clicking here.
