March of Dimes Partners with Statewide Health Agencies to Address Late Preterm Birth

In an effort to reduce the number of late preterm births, the March of Dimes New York Chapter announced today it will partner with the New York State Department of Health (NYSDOH) and the New York State Chapter of the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG District II) to help educate health care providers and the public on the importance of the last weeks of pregnancy and the risk of early deliveries.  A healthy, full term-pregnancy lasts 39-40 weeks, yet there has been a rise in births scheduled prior to that time through inductions and C-sections that are not medically necessary - a practice once thought to be safe.  Research shows that scheduling births, even a few weeks too early, may result in babies having feeding, breathing and learning problems.  They are also more likely to die of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS).
