Risk Factors

The reasons behind a preterm delivery are not clear, but a number of factors may increase the risk of a preterm delivery. These are:

A previous premature birth, Twins, triplets or other multiples, A less than six month interval between pregnancies, Vitro fertilization, Uterus, cervix or placenta problems, Cigarettes or illicit drugs, Poor nutrition, Lack of enough weight gain during pregnancy, Infections, Chronic conditions like high blood pressure and diabetes, Underweight or overweight before the pregnancy, Stressful life events, Previous miscarriages or abortions, Trauma or injury


A preterm delivery gives the baby a little less time to develop in the womb, which may lead to complications further down the road. The cutting short of a baby’s gestation period can be seen in the following signs:

Small size and a disproportionately large head, Less rounded features due to a lack of fat stores, Fine hair covering most of the body, Low body temperature, Labored breathing, Respiratory distress, Lack of reflexes for sucking and swallowing


Not all preterm babies face complications, while some do.

Some studies have shown that the chemicals in the hair colouring products are proven harmful for the fetus, hence, its better to avoid hair dye and colouring during pregnancy, If you must colour then wait untill second trimester and follow the instructions properly.

Yes, flu vaccine is safe during pregnancy, but one must request for flu shots and not nasal spray. The flu shot for influenza is made from inactived virus and is safe to be administered at any time during pregnancy. If you are allergic to egg, you must tell your doctor because the flu vaccine contains small amount of egg protein. There is also a vaccine that doesn’t contain egg and approved for use in adults above 18.

No self medication is allowed in pregnancy especially in the first trimester. It’s always advisable to consult your doctor before taking even vitamins and simple medication for cough and cold. At times even the medication for pre-existing diseases needs to be re-evaluated and changed, ask your doctor even about herbal and homeopathy treatment you are taking because most of the herbal medicines have not been proven to be safe during pregnancy.

Travel with pregnancy is safest during second trimester but do consult with your Obstetrician regarding immunisation. If you have a high risk pregnancy, you will be advised accordingly. Place of travelling, modes of travelling, duration of the travel, all factors are to be considered and discussed.

Pregnancy is a normal physiological phenomena and our body is well equipped to deal and cope with the body changes and the demand of pregnancy. Nevertheless, one should not exert during pregnancy more than what one’s body is used to. You could continue with whatever exercise regiment you were doing prior to pregnancy but as soon as your body signals exertion, pain and discomfort, you should stop and you have to discusss it with your obstetrician as certain pregnancies require reduced exertion or bed rest.

The basic guide is the women’s comfort but if there is a history of miscarriage, pre-mature labour, STD and infection in any of the partners, multipe pregnancy – intercourse should be avoided; generally the obstetricians suggest limitation or avoidance for a period of time. During first trimester, due to nausea and vomiting and fatigue the desire to have sex reduces and it gets better by the time second trimester starts. It’s best to consult your Obstetrician regarding intercourse.

Avoid coffee, alcohol, coke, diet coke, raw eggs or half cooked egg, raw fish, smoked fish. Limit your fish intake especially in first trimester because high content of mercury in certain fish can harm the baby. Also avoid mouldy ripened, soft cheeses such as brie and camembert but cottage cheese mozzarella, feta, paneer, goat and ricotta are safe. Cold cuts like salami are not cooked and therefore should be avoided. Goes without saying that alcoholic beverages should be avoided! Spicy food and chillis in first trimester can exaggerate your morning sickness so best to avoid..

As soon as you suspect you are pregnant, schedule an appointment with a Gynaecologist/Obstetrician, but best would be to plan a pre-pregnancy counselling, so that screening tests are done for pre-existing medical conditions. If there is any pre-existing disease it’s dealt in advance. For example if there is high blood pressure, diabetes and blood disorder etc, adequate treatment is started.
