Premature Labor: Warning Signs

Backache, contractions, cramping, and fluid leaking are some of the warning signs of preterm labor. Dr. Alberto Sirven, Medical Director of the West Kendall OB/GYN Program and Women and Infant Credentials Committee Chairman with West Kendall Baptist Hospital, says it is important to discuss those signs with your doctor when you feel cramping and pain.

He points out the physician will help you determine whether they are normal signs of pregnancy or preterm labor signs, and he also explains preterm labor does not mean you will have a preterm birth.
