ABSTRACT
All labour which occurs at a gestation period less than 37 weeks of gestation is called premature labour. Premature labour is the most common complication in the second half of pregnancy, and delivery is followed by risks for the baby. The incidence is 7 to 10% of all deliveries. It is the main cause of neonatal morbidity and mortality. The etiology of preterm labour is unknown in 40 to 70% of cases. This study shows the etiological factors of preterm labour, patophisiology, preterm newborn deliveries and treatment of preterm labour. Early identification of high risk pregnant women should be the best way for effective prevention.
