Abstract

Preterm labour is defined as labour that occurs before the 37th week of pregnancy. It happens in about 9% of all pregnancies. Preterm labour is defined as uterine contractions that generate cervical effacement and dilatation in a woman. Any woman who has a pattern of labour lasting more than an hour with contractions lasting 30 seconds and occurring as frequently as every 10 minutes should be considered to be in labour. Preterm labour is dangerous because it leads in the birth of a preterm baby. Women who give birth prematurely may experience more painless contractions, backache, and more vaginal discharge than others. Preterm birth causes for 75% of all perinatal deaths and up to 50% of infancy neurological handicaps. Preterm birth occurs at varying rates in different populations, with the lowest incidence occurring in the socioeconomically advantaged population and the highest incidence occurring in the medically impoverished community. Preterm labor will be managed after identifying the women who are at risk for this complication.
