Progestogens for Prevention of Preterm Birth

Slide: 5 of 29

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.
