    Women Born Early at Higher Risk of Having Preemies

    "Women who were born prematurely may be more likely to deliver their own babies early, a new study suggests.

    Canadian researchers found that the odds of delivering a preterm infant -- born before 37 weeks of pregnancy -- rose more than 40 percent for women who were born between 32 and 36 weeks themselves, regardless of other risk factors.


    What's more, the earlier in pregnancy a woman had been born, the higher the risk of a similar fate for her offspring."


    Read the article above for more information on what this could mean for you and your pregnancy.
