Why does preventing early birth matter to you?  

"Because an individual’s health, in all of its domains, are optimised by being born as close to term as possible. A key role of maternity care providers is to ensure that the start to life is as healthy as possible. Timing of birth is central to that."
The Australian Preterm Birth Prevention Alliance is working to safely lower the rate of early birth across Australia.
