November is Prematurity Awareness Month and since delivering babies is what we do best, we wanted to shed some light on premature births in the United States. Preterm birth is when a baby is born before 37 weeks gestation. Statistics show that 1 in 10 babies will be born prematurely. Research also tells us that while we can certainly outline some of the contributing factors for preterm birth, many times, there is no known cause. This is why prenatal care is so vital to both the mother and the infant in the 40 weeks leading up to delivery.

From the moment you found out you were pregnant, you started protecting your developing baby. You might have changed the way you eat, started taking a prenatal vitamin, or researching the kind of car seat you’ll buy.
