Progestogens for Prevention of Preterm Birth
Approaches to the Prevention of Preterm Birth
The ultimate goals of preventing preterm birth are to eliminate the risks of neonatal death or complications, to prevent long-term health consequences, and to promote normal childhood development. Interventions used once a woman has symptoms of preterm labor have not been reliable for preventing preterm birth. Earlier interventions based on risk rather than symptoms are hoped to be more effective.
