VAZQUEZ-NAVA, Francisco et al. Association of obstetric violence, prenatal control, and unplanned pregnancy with prematurity. Perinatol. Reprod. Hum. [online]. 2021, vol.35, n.2, pp.65-74.  Epub May 06, 2022. ISSN 2524-1710.

Neonatal prematurity (MP) is a major public health problem in the world, due to its presentation frequency and the years of life potentially lost; In addition, it is the main cause of death in children under five years of age. Among the negative consequences of MP are learning, visual and hearing disabilities. There are multiple factors associated with MP; some can be detected and modified in a timely manner in prenatal consultations and in preconception. On the other hand, MP is not only responsibility of the health service provider, but also of the health system, which must grant the minimum resources necessary to monitor and maintain the pregnant woman in an optimal state of health to avoid it, and if it occurs, the hospital must have the basic infrastructure that allows the viability of the product and prevents its death. In addition, the responsibility of the patient and her partner must be considered since they are obliged to lead a healthy lifestyle and attend preconception consultations and prenatal care.
