Preterm Birth More Likely in Baby Boys, Study Suggests

Preterm Birth More Likely in Baby Boys, Study Suggests

New research out of the University of Adelaide in Australia suggests that the sex of a baby may play a role in potentially life-threatening outcomes at birth. Data from over 574,000 births in South Australia over a 30-year period was analyzed in this study, noting that baby boys are more likely to be born preterm than girls—a leading cause of long-term neurological disabilities like cerebral palsy. Mothers who birth baby boys were also 4% more likely to suffer from gestations diabetes and 7.5% more like to be diagnosed with high blood pressure or preeclampsia, the study also indicates. Although the exact science behind why these complications are more prevalent in male pregnancies vs. female pregnancies, the researchers hope their findings will influence maternity healthcare to better serve the needs of mother and child.
