Preterm Birth is the leading cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality in the US. The goal of the Prematurity Prevention Initiative is to identify at-risk patients, increase the use of indicated progesterone and decrease the preterm birth rate.
These materials will assist you in determining appropriate progesterone treatment and provide education to parents about the prevention of preterm birth.
Additional materials are listed for provider use.
We rely on your generosity to provide quality medical care to every child who needs us.
