Complications of early birth, or babies born before 37 weeks of pregnancy, are the largest contributor to death in the first year of life in the United States, according to the March of Dimes. Specifically, data from the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention show that from the 2016 preterm birth rate of 9.85 percent, the 2017 preterm birth rate rose to 9.93 percent.

Keena says in areas where the March of Dimes has supported programs to increase access to prenatal care, the rates of preterm births have decreased.

African-Americans were more likely to be born prematurely. Sarasota and Pinellas counties got a B rating on the report. The states with the highest premature birth rates were mostly in the South and the lower Midwest.

Vermont was the only state to receive an "A" grade in the annual report. "We really wanted to make sure we could maximize women who had health insurance coverage during pregnancy, as well as postpartum." says Clyne. "Our country's most important resource is human potential". Stacey D. Stewart, president of March of Dimes called this rise an "alarming trend".

This means that black women in the United States were 49 percent more likely to have a preterm birth than other woman of all races and ethnicities. "Birth equity is our goal; it can be reached".

The 2018 Report did show bright spots of progress in several states where a range of organizations, including the March of Dimes, have been able to reverse the trend and lower the preterm birth rate.

The results showed that those pregnant women who had a level of EPA + DHA in the blood level to 1.6% (reduced), faced with premature birth 10 times more often compared to those women in whom the level of these components was above 1.6%. Furthermore, the three years in which birth rates continuously increased actually followed almost a decade of decline from 2007 to 2015. Mothers having their babies in their 40s risk having preterm deliveries say experts. It also helps ensure they have a minimum birth spacing of 18 months between two pregnancies, which also helps cut risks. "Lack of education about a healthy pregnancy and prenatal care, as well as a lack of understanding about risk factors and behavioral habits that can ensure a healthy outcome is another possible factor". "It means we're not taking care of our moms and babies".

The March of Dimes report card does offer some hope in some parts of the country.

The researchers concluded that premature births are associated with insufficient levels of omega-3 fatty acids in the body of pregnant women.

Stress, poverty and lack of health care can lead to premature birth.

"While a slight improvement in Orange County is heartening, the challenges of preterm births remain", said Dr. Kevin Sherin, director of Florida Department of Health in Orange County.

4 states (Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi, West Virginia) received an "F".

Among the 100 largest US cities, based on the number of births in 2016, Irvine, California once again had the best (lowest) rate of preterm birth at 5.5 percent, and Detroit, Michigan now has the worst (highest) preterm birth rate at 14.5 percent.
