Hello Ira, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Preterm or preterm labor is delivery that occurs under 37 weeks of gestation. The cause of preterm labor itself is not known clearly, but there are several factors that can increase the risk of a woman giving birth prematurely, including:
have a history of preterm labor before being pregnant with twins (two or more) with a pregnancy interval of less than 6 months after delivery. especially infections of the urinary tract and reproductive tract of chronic diseases owned by the mother such as diabetes and high blood pressure obesity or too thin before pregnancy too much or too much weight gain during pregnancy too much stress in the mother during pregnancy a history of miscarriage or recurrent abortion / physical trauma During pregnancy, you are advised to carry out routine pregnancy control to the midwife or obstetrician. If you have the risk factors above, you should check your pregnancy with a gynecologist so that a more comprehensive pregnancy examination can be done.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
