There are no studies which show that premature labor is hereditary, but it is worth letting your obstetrician know if you have such a history. It is also worthwhile to be more vigilant about premature contractions during your pregnancy.

In some cases, the first sign of fetal death is premature labor. Premature labor is marked by a rush of fluid from the vagina, caused by the tearing of the membrane around the baby; and by abdominal cramps or contractions

a premature labor occurs when the fetus has been developing in the womb for 37 weeks or less, a false labor is when the mother feels contractions and believes the labor may have begun hours or days before the actual labor starts.

Unusual abdominal pain and/or cramping may indicate the onset of premature labor. Mild cramping for the first day or two following the procedure is normal.

Pushing on the stomach can cause premature labor if enough pressure is applied. More specifically, the woman will enter premature dilation, which in turn leads to a premature baby. For this reason, pregnant women should avoid sleeping on their stomach.

If the membranes have already ruptured, it may be difficult to stop premature labor. If infection of the membranes that cover the fetus (chorioamnionitis) develops, the baby must be delivered.

Premature labor is contractions that occur after 20 weeks and before 37 weeks during pregnancy. The baby is more likely to survive and be healthy if it remains in the uterus for the full term of the pregnancy.

A lot of teens experience premature labor because their own body is still developing and is not ready to support a child. Statistics show that children born to teen mothers have a higher chance of being in a special needs class or being behind in development of other students. Whether that be because they were premature, the environment they grew up in, what the mother did during the pregnancy (smoke, drink, do drugs), hereditary problems, or natural abnormalities was not said. So yes, statistically teens are more susceptible to having premature labor.

mainly there are hereditary causes. if the parents have gone through it then it is more likely for the child to do so too.

User Avatar

Yes, which is the cause basically for premature babies.

Yes, there are babies who die this late. If you go into labor it's premature labor though and not miscarriage.

Observation occurs for several hours to watch for premature labor. The patient stays in bed or avoids physical activity for 2 to 3 days. Follow-up appointments to monitor for signs of premature labor.

A tightening of the uterus during pregnancy. Contractions may or may not be painful and may or may not indicate labor.

Uterus contractions, abdominal cramping (with or without diarrhea), pelvic region pressure, low backache, change in the vaginal discharge, dilation of the cervix, premature rupture of membranes.

There are many conditions that can lead to a premature birth. I had placenta abruptio which is a separation of the placenta from the uterine wall. Many times the cause for premature labor is not determined but it can be from a serious impact such as in a vehicle accident or fall to illness related or from the lifestyle of the mother such as smoking.
