1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question

According to POGI, preterm labor is a birth that occurs when the age of 22-37 weeks of pregnancy. The younger the gestational age, the lower the baby's weight at birth, the higher the risk of infant death.

A mother is threatened with preterm labor if she experiences the following:

1. Uterine contractions are repeated at least every 7-8 minutes or 2-3 times in 10 minutes

2. Lower back pain

3. Spotting of blood

4. A feeling of pressure in the pubic area

5. Minimum 2 cm opening and 50-80% thinning of the mouth of the jaw

6. Low fetal presentation

7. ruptured membranes

8. Often experience vaginal discharge

In the management of preterm labor, the need to be maintained or not is assessed from several factors into consideration including:

1. The amniotic membrane - if it has ruptured, labor is an option

2. Cervical opening - if it is 4 cm or more it is difficult to maintain

3. Gestational age - the younger it is, it is necessary to prevent childbirth. Delivery may be considered when estimated fetal weight is> 2000 grams or gestational age> 34 weeks

4. The presence or absence of NICU facilities

Consult with a gynecologist especially if the contractions you feel are regular or have other symptoms as mentioned earlier. The doctor will evaluate the condition of your pregnancy and determine the appropriate therapy if there is a threat of preterm labor. Early treatment to prevent preterm labor, such as administration of labor inhibitors, corticosteroids for maturation of the baby's lungs, antibiotics for infection prevention, and advice for bed rest.

So, hopefully this information can help
