Premature births are more common these days
May 25, 2007 4:19pm CST
My friend got me to thinking back when I gave birth to my daughter 6 years ago. She told me that the Neo-Natal unit her son is in has 20 babies in it. Pregnant women have so much stress on their bodies today that it hurts our cances in having full term births. One of the nurses that came in her room today while I was there made a statement that 90% of the babies born in their hospital end up being born at least a month or more early. What cam we do as women that can change that statistic? Babies need the full 9 months to grow and develop and they are being cheated out of it too much these days. Check out this post I made on premature births www.associatedcontent.com/article/256673/my_journey_with_my_premature_baby.html

I think there's a rise because of fertility treatments (which makes a rise in multiples), women being more stressed, lack of prenatal care and nutrition, the rise in obesity too. I also think there is a lot more toxins in our environment which affects pregnancies.

Its really not good. Nowadays no.of women smokers are also increased. I think a pregnant lady should understand her responsibility and if she gets good moral support then it could be avoided. Other genetic problems are different things. Stress management guidence during pregnancy is also a good way to avoid this. Doing yoga is very good way to be stress free. It helped me even during the last moment of delivery.
