Premature Baby-Common Health Problems

There are many causes of preterm delivery. Sometimes, Mum, it is caused by the style of life you have chosen to have during pregnancy.

That is: drinking alcohol, using drugs, smoking, eating poorly and not gaining weight.

Sometimes the cause is not within MumĀ“s control. You could have a structural abnormality of the uterus; a hormone unbalance; a chronic illness; an infection or several other things that could lead to a premature birth. If you have a premature baby it is more likely to happen when a woman is over 35 years old or under age 19; or is carrying multiple fetuses. Sometimes the cause is totally unknown.
