from The BMJ
Women whose first baby is born at full term, but who experience complications in pregnancy, have an increased risk of preterm delivery (before 37 weeks) in their next pregnancy, finds a study from Norway published by
recently. The findings suggest that term complications may share important underlying causes with preterm delivery that persist from pregnancy to pregnancy — and could therefore help identify women at increased risk of preterm delivery, despite having had a previous term birth, say the researchers.
