Q: What are the signs and symptoms of premature labor?


A: A delivery before 37 weeks is considered "premature". Anytime you have certain symptoms there is a possibility that you may have premature labor and you should let your doctor know about it right away.

Premature delivery is responsible for over 75% of all neonatal deaths, so diagnosing possible premature labor early on is important to try and prevent a premature delivery.
