Med’s David Hackney discusses recent study about preterm deliveries

GiddyDavid Hackney, associate professor at the School of Medicine, discussed a recent study suggesting preterm delivery can increase the risk of early death by up to 109%. “There is unfortunately not a singular, simple answer though broadly, pregnant outcome measures, including sadly mortality, are strongly tied to the health of a country’s general adult population at the time they conceive,” he said.
