Shorter women have shorter pregnancies, study shows

18 agosto 2015

Shorter mothers have shorter pregnancies, smaller babies, and higher risk for a preterm birth. Investigators found that a mother’s height directly influences her risk for preterm birth. They also found that maternal height, which is determined by genetic factors, helped shape the fetal environment, influencing the length of pregnancy and frequency of prematurity. In contrast, birth length and birth weight are mainly influenced by transmitted genes.
