Preterm delivery is the largest contributor to perinatal morbidity and mortality throughout the world. In the United States, nearly 1 in every 8 infants is born prematurely. Although a portion of these births are indicated preterm deliveries, the frequency of spontaneous preterm birth has remained largely constant over the past 50 years.
