Cincinnati Children's has launched a Familial Preterm Birth Program to provide preterm birth prevention consultations to mothers with at high risk of going into early labor.

The outpatient clinic is designed for preconception and early pregnancy planning for women who have experienced a prior preterm birth as well as women who are less than 24 weeks pregnant and at risk for preterm labor.

Patients will be counseled on their specific risk factors as well as new preventative strategies with recommendations provided to the families and their obstetric providers.
