Quotes to Note

Newborn babies should weigh NOT LESS than 5.5 pounds.

Births with LOW Birth Weight as Percent of All Births:
Alabama 10.6%
USA 8.2%

 

 

A Full-Term Pregnancy normally lasts 40 weeks.

Every week -- even every day -- that this full-term pregnancy is shortened, can have negative effects on the baby.

Here are just a few of the SERIOUS RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH PRE-TERM BIRTH:

admission to newborn ICU / hospital re-admission /

respiratory problems / sepsis / jaundice /

feeding & sucking problems / temperature regulation problems /

brain injuries, i.e. cerebral palsy / school problems / behavior problems, i.e. ADHD /

obesity & reduced insulin sensitivity

In Alabama, Non-Hispanic Blacks are 46% more likely to have preterm births than whites – they also abort at 3 TIMES the rate of whites (almost 60% of all abortions in AL are procured by Black women)...

Does anyone see a connection here?
Abortion can dramatically increase the risk of preterm birth in subsequent pregnancies... over 125 published studies worldwide show this abortion-preterm birth link...

 

In conclusion, 2 simple steps should DRAMATICALLY DECREASE PRETERM BIRTHS  --   & THUS DECREASE SERIOUS RISKS TO BABIES:

1) For elective births, let the baby begin the labor/birth process, normally at 40 weeks -- it's Worth the Weight to Wait!!

2) Avoid Abortion to avoid compromising the mother's (your) cervix ... this will protect against unplanned preterm labor and preterm birth in future pregnancies.

 

ELECTIVE DELIVERY SHOULD BE ELECTIVE FOR THE BABY!!

LET THE BABY START LABOR...
