Premature Birth - Are we at risk? (Talk Summary)


What is prematurity and who should be concerned about it? You might not even gave a thought to an early arrival of your little one, but in reality 15 million babies are born premature each year. In lower income countries this rate can be as high as 12% or 1 in every 10 babies, compared to higher income countries where this rate is about 9% (World Health Organization).

Prematurity means that your baby is born before 37 weeks of the pregnancy is completed. This early arrival may happen as a result of various reasons, including, but not limited to: multiple pregnancies, infections and chronic conditions, such as diabetes and high blood pressure; however, often no cause is identified. There is also a genetic influence.

If every pregnant couple know the risk factors of premature birth, danger signs of premature labour, and measures to prevent premature birth the survival rate and outcomes of newborns can be much higher. And if you know what to do and expect in the unfortunate event of your baby arriving early despite preventative measures, both the couple and their baby’s outcomes will be much better and even special.

Preterm birth happens to a relative small amount of babies, but the experience for the whole family is usually very traumatic, but if you are well prepared and know where to get support, the premature parenting journey can be a very rewarding one.

Welma’s interest in preterm birth started in a neonatal intensive care unit next to a little hospital bed when she realised that although hospital staff do their very best to save and care for prematurely born babies, they do little to ensure that parenting happens. This motivated her to develop programs to ensure that the role of parenting is returned to parents of preterm and newborn babies from the moment of birth, irrespective of the birth process or the immediate circumstances following the delivery.

Her book, talks and articles are there for aimed to inform parents about their precious little person and empower them to take on their parenting role as soon as possible and help their fragile infant to develop optimally.

For Dr. Welma Lubbe's free gift, she would like to share ways in which Mothers can lower their risk for premature delivery by sharing a few precautions moms can take.
