Definition - What does Premature Birth mean?
The primary symptoms of premature birth include excessive vaginal bleeding during pregnancy, fluid leaking from the vagina, or uterine contractions that are less than ten minutes apart. While there is no definite cause for premature birth, women who suffer from obesity, PCOS, diabetes, anorexia, or high blood pressure are often considered at risk.
Kinkly explains Premature Birth
Women with a shorter or weaker cervix are also at increased risk of premature labor. This can also affect expectant mothers who suffer from clinical depression or severe anxiety. Antibiotics, progesterone, and cervical cerclage (better known as cervical stitch) are often used to lower the risks of premature birth.
