An estimated 13 million babies are born too early every year worldwide - that is about 25 preterm babies every minute, with approximately 900,000 children dying each year due to preterm birth complications.
To mark World Prematurity Day on 17 November, we talked to authors of ISUOG's 'Practice Guidelines: role of ultrasound in the prediction of spontaneous preterm birth' Professor Fabricio Da Silva Costa and Dr Conrado Coutinho on the issues on topic that matter to our community most.
Over the course of this two-part series, our experts answer your questions about preterm birth. Plus, we share our supplementary learning materials on the topic, as well as free access to Prof. Costa and Dr Coutinho's guidlines, as part of our continued mission to bring high-quality education in obstetrics and gynecology.
