Babies born in early have a 57 percent greater risk of struggling with their heart and lungs later in life than those who reach their due date, according to a new study.

Each additional week spent in the womb was associated with a 14 percent reduction in the risk of poor cardiorespiratory health. 

This study follows previous research demonstrating effects of premature birth on heart and respiratory health later in life. 

The study’s lead author, Dr Isabel Ferreira of the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, hopes that these findings will discourage women from electing to have early term cesarean sections or labor inducements.
