Can premature birth be genetic?

Hi All, One of my friends hubby was born 1 month premature. my friend is 5 weeks preggy. I am worried that there is a chance she could also go into labor prematurely. Does anybody has an idea????

So many factors play a role - none of which are necessarily genetic - in premature birth that no one can predict if it will happen to someone.
