Preventing Premature Births

Premature births are on the rise, and now the government wants to know why.

One in eight babies is born prematurely, and a recent study shows underweight births have hit the highest level in 40 years.

Now Federal Health Officials and the U.S. Surgeon General are beginning an unprecedented push to find out why.

They are also putting together a new campaign to educate women about this troubling trend.
