PRE-TERM LABOR: HOW TO AVOID IT
Before you can determine how to avoid pre-term labor, you must understand what it is, and what causes the condition. Pre-term labor is diagnosed when labor begins before 37 weeks gestation; 3 or more weeks prior to the due date. Unfortunately, in most cases, the actual cause of pre-term labor is unknown. However, there are instances when certain conditions are identified, and act as a warning sign that early (pre-term) labor is a possibility.
Some known causes of pre-term labor include:
- A prior history of premature labor.
- A prior history of habitual miscarriage.
- Incompetent cervix (the inability of the cervix to hold the pregnancy can be seen in some cases of second and third trimester losses).
- Premature rupture of membranes.
- Carrying more than one fetus (twins, triplets, etc.).
- Drugs/substance abuse.
- Uterine infection.
- High blood pressure during pregnancy or chronic hypertension.
- Gestational diabetes or pre-gestational diabetes.
It is important to understand what labor is, and when it is actually occurring. There are certain practice guidelines that most midwives and health care providers follow and these will be discussed with you. Make sure you understand what these mean, and when to call your midwife or health care provider. Usually, these guidelines include the following:
Call Your Midwife If:
- You have four or more contractions in a one-hour period. If you live more than 30 minutes away from your midwife, you may be instructed to call her if you have 3 or more contractions in an hour. The contraction intensity should be uncomfortable (more than a cramping sensation). Your abdomen should get hard during a contraction and you may have difficulty speaking. You may have to stop and concentrate on breathing while having a contraction. In addition, a contraction can last anywhere from a few seconds to a few minutes. Labor contractions are often felt in the lower back and the sensations may travel around to the front of the belly.
- You suspect your water has broken. Each woman experiences this differently. You may feel a sudden gush, or possibly just a trickle. If you feel that your water has broken, call your midwife immediately. The fluid is usually clear (but can be bloody, or yellow- or green-tinged) and have a sweet smell to it. It will not smell like urine. Ask your midwife if she would be willing to give you a small strip of litmus paper (nitrazine test) to take home. Urine is usually acidic with a pH below 7, whereas amniotic fluid is mildly alkaline with pH of 7.2. It is easy to use and read, and can prevent unnecessary worry. A fern test may be done where a sample of fluid is taken from the back of the vagina with a swab and examined under a microscope. Dried amniotic fluid creates a fern pattern, visible under a microscope.
- ANY vaginal bleeding warrants an immediate call to your midwife. This may be caused by a placenta previa (placenta partially or fully over the cervix opening) or a placental abruption (a partial or fully detached placenta). This can be an emergency. This also may be bloody show (a tinge of blood mixed with gobs of mucous), which is seen in active labor as the cervix is dilating and effacing.
- An odd sense of "pressure" can also be a sign of labor. You may feel a sensation if pressure in you abdomen, thighs, rectum, or vagina. You may also have the feeling that the baby is "falling out" or that you have a "watermelon between your legs" feeling.
- Any change in vaginal discharge. As the cervix dilates and effaces, you will loose your mucous plug from the cervix. This mucous plug is often a creamy color with possibly a slight tinge of blood (very slight - pinkish).
- A constant pain in the lower back, which radiates towards the uterus, can also be a sign that labor has begun. Many labors are felt in the lower back as a nagging back ache that comes and goes with regular intervals.
- Often, the most reliable sign that labor is beginning, is a woman's intuition that things are not "right" or "normal." Do not hesitate to call your midwife. Remember that they are there to care for you, and your unborn baby. Never feel that you are pestering your midwife. They understand your concerns, and expect that you will call with questions.
Although there is no sure-fire way to prevent pre-term labor, there are precautions that you can take to give you and your baby the best chance possible of going to full term.
Among these are:
- Do not smoke, drink, or use other harmful substances.
- Avoid stress and strenuous work.
- Keep the lines of communication open with your midwife or health care provider.
- Rest as much as you can.
- Learn to recognize the signs of pre-term labor.
- Pay attention to the signs that your body (and your baby) are giving you.
Pre-term labor can be treated with various medications, restrictions, and monitoring. If you feel, at any time, that labor is beginning, call your midwife or health care provider immediately. If the condition is caught early on, your baby will have a much better chance of survival.
Complete bed rest is necessary once signs of premature labor begin. Discontinue work or other physical activities. Avoid any sexual activity.

MoonDragon's Nutrition Information & Guidelines
BENEFICIAL DIETARY SUPPLEMENTS TO PREVENT MISCARRIAGE
Red Raspberry Leaf helps strengthen the uterus and may be taken as a tea. Red Raspberry has long been established as a female herb. The leaf tea is used by pregnant women to help prevent complications and make delivery easier. It has also been known to reduce menstrual bleeding and relieve symptoms of diarrhea. In addition to preventing complications in pregnancy, reducing menstrual bleeding, and diarrhea, Red Raspberry is used to relax uterine and intestinal spasms. It is known to strengthen uterine walls, and promote healthy nails, bones, teeth and skin. Red Raspberry can diminish the effects of morning sickness, false labor pains, hot flashes, and menstrual cramps. Using Red Raspberry after childbirth helps decrease uterine swelling and reduces postpartum bleeding. Small children can drink Red Raspberry tea for vomiting, dysentery, and diarrhea. The warm tea also soothes sore throats, mouth ulcers, bleeding gums, and canker sores. Pour one cup of boiling water over 1 or 2 teaspoons of dried Red Raspberry leaf, steep for 10 minutes, and then sweeten to taste. Drink 2 to 3 cups daily while pregnant.
False Unicorn Root may help when the cervix is too loose to hold the pregnancy as a powerful tonic. Use 3 drops of the tincture four to five times daily, beginning a month before conception and continuing for the entire first trimester. False Unicorn helps strengthen the uterus. False Unicorn is an herbaceous perennial, native to the Mississippi area. Its leaves are from 2 to 8 inches long, spoon shaped, and wider at the top than at the base. The flowers are white and starry or greenish-white and can reach 2 feet or longer depending on whether they are male or female flowers. For centuries women have used False Unicorn for menstrual and uterine problems, and morning sickness. Native American women reportedly chewed the root to prevent miscarriages. False Unicorn should not be confused with another member of the lily family commonly known as "true unicorn root." They are different. False Unicorn contains hormone-like saponins which help make this herb a ovarian and uterine tonic. It also has an adaptogenic or balancing effect on sex hormones, helping to relieve many disorders of the reproductive tract, menstrual irregularities and premenstrual syndrome related to hormonal imbalance. And this herb has bitter properties that helps it act as a tonic on the liver and digestive tract. Many herbalists recommend False Unicorn for reducing menopausal symptoms, and treating ovarian cysts. It has also been used to normalize hormone levels following oral contraceptive use. This root balances sex hormones in males as well as females. It can also be used for endometriosis, ovarian cysts, menstrual irregularities and pain, premenstrual syndrome and prostate disorders. False Unicorn is used to treat venereal diseases, particularly gonorrhea. It is also used as a diuretic and to rid the intestinal tract of worms. This herb can also stimulate the appetite and relieve the nausea and vomiting that accompany pregnancy. False Unicorn comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. For using a decoction, take 1 to 2 teaspoonfuls of the root in 1 cup of boiling water. Drink 3 times a day. For using a tincture, take 2 to 4 ml, 3 times a day. If using False Unicorn for the "normalizing" effect on the female reproductive system in regulating the menstrual cycle, or promoting an absent cycle, note that it can take several months before there is a significant effect on the cycle. For other formulations read product label directions.
Wild Yam helps improve hormonal balance for maintaining pregnancy. Various species of Wild Yam grows throughout North and Central America, and Asia, and has been used to treat indigestion, coughs, morning sickness, gall bladder pain, menstrual cramps, joint pain, and nerve pain. The primary, but incorrect use of Wild Yam as a source of women's hormones is based on the misconception that Wild Yam contains progesterone and DHEA. Wild Yam contains chemicals that chemists can use only as a starting point to manufacture progesterone. This herb does not contain progesterone. Some Wild Yam products have progesterone in them, but it is a synthetic progesterone that has been added to the product. Do not discount the use of Wild Yam as it can still be used to relax muscle spasms, reduce inflammations, and promote perspiration. This herb can be used for menstrual cramps or pain, menopausal symptoms, rheumatic conditions, and gallbladder complaints. Wild Yam is also used to treat colic, gallbladder disorder, hypoglycemia, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), kidney stones, neuralgia, and rheumatism. Wild Yam comes in various forms and is an ingredient in many products. Wild Yam Extract is used for a wide range of ailments including many female problems and to relieve the pain of child birth. This plant is useful as an anti-inflammatory, antispasmodic, cholagogue, diaphoretic and vasodilator. It alleviates many of the symptoms of menopause and PMS such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood changes, and vaginal dryness. It is also used to treat irritable bowel syndrome, gastritis, gall bladder complaints, spasmodic cramps, painful menstruation, and in small doses is especially helpful in treating the nausea of pregnant women. For best results, read and follow product label directions.
Prenatal Vitamin Supplements provide general nutrition, which is very important for fetal development and to support pregnancy.
Folic Acid helps prevent birth defects and supports pregnancy. Folic acid is necessary precursor for the manufacture of genetic material like RNA and DNA. Folic acid also assists in the growth and repair of tissues and in the conversion of fats and amino acids into other useful products in the body.
Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids strengthens blood vessels. Vitamin C with Bioflavonoids provides powerful antioxidant protection, strengthens collagen and maintains white blood cell function. Bioflavonoids provides antioxidant protection for many of the body's important enzyme systems.
Vitamin E helps balance hormones. Alpha-tocopherol is the most active form of vitamin E in humans, and is a powerful biological antioxidant. Vitamin E is a major antioxidant and the primary defense against lipid peroxidation. Antioxidants such as vitamin E act to protect your cells against the effects of free radicals and oxidative damage. Free radicals are potentially damaging by-products of the body's metabolism. Free radicals can cause cell damage that may contribute to the development of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
HERBAL SUGGESTIONS TO PREVENT MISCARRIAGE
Black Haw and Crampbark are the two herbs most commonly used by European physicians, Native Americans and modern herbalists to calm the uterus.
Red Raspberry Leaf has a long history of use in pregnancy for threatened miscarriage. Standard dosage: 2 capsules three times daily.
False Unicorn is prized by herbalists for its adaptogenic effect on the ovaries (normalizes function).
Wild Yam (Dioscorea Villosa) may benefit those women who are threatening miscarriage due to stimulation to the adrenal glands as well as the antispasmodic effects of the herb. Wild Yam root is the source material for hormonal birth control pills. It contains glycosides from which the body can manufacture the hormones progesterone and cortisone, which are needed to maintain the pregnancy. The infusion is the strongest preparation. Take 2 to 4 ounces of infusion every half hour. Results should be evident by the second dose. The tincture is less effective and may cause nausea or vomiting. Use 10 drops every half hour as needed.
OTHER HELPFUL TIPS & HERBAL AIDS TO PREVENT THREATENED MISCARRIAGE:
Along with bed rest and relaxation, take Vitamin E (up to 2000 IU a day) during the crisis period.
Alcohol (shot of whiskey or other spirits) relaxes the smooth muscles and can be used to slow or stop uterine contractions if sipped when cramping is felt. Intravenous alcohol is still used in hospitals to help forestall threatened miscarriage.
Lobelia herb is used in two ways: it will aid the miscarriage if the fetus is weak or malformed, but prevent it if the fetus is healthy and strong. Take the leaf and seed tea in sips every few minutes throughout a full hour. After an hour's rest, repeat. Lobelia tea causes nausea or vomiting in some women. The tincture is usually less nauseating. Take no more than 15 drops in a small glass of water as often as every 15 minutes, for several days, if needed.
For bleeding near term from possible abruption of the placenta, take 1500 IU Vitamin E (3 doses of 500 IU), 50,000 IU Vitamin A (2 doses of 25,000 IU), 6,000 mg of Vitamin C (6 doses of 1,000 mg), 50 mg Zinc (with food) daily for up to 2 weeks or until the pregnancy is stabilized. Although the vitamin E is supposed to "glue" the placenta back onto the uterus and hold it until the pregnancy is full term, however, large doses of vitamin E taken within 1 week of term may cause abnormal adhesion of the placenta to the uterus.
THREATENED MISCARRIAGE BREW
1 tablespoon dried Black Haw root bark or Cramp Bark
3 tablespoon dried Raspberry leaf
10 drops Wild Yam root tincture
10 drops False Unicorn root tincture
60 drops Lobelia herb tincture
Put herbs in quart jar and add four cups of boiling water. Steep until cool enough to drink. Add tinctures to one cupful of tea and drink. If contractions continue for more than 30 minutes, add 60 drops of Lobelia tincture to a second cup of tea. Drink a cup every 3 hours, adding tinctures as needed, until miscarriage no longer threatens. Increase the effectiveness of the brew by resting in bed and taking 500 IU of Vitamin E every six hours.

NOTIFY YOUR MIDWIFE OR HEALTH CARE PROVIDER.
You or a family member has symptoms of premature labor. Call your midwife immediately. This is an emergency! If you are planning an out-of-hospital birth, you may need to be transported to a medical facility, depending upon just how early you are in your gestational dating. Follow your midwife's or health care provider's instructions. If the symptoms get worse, or do not go away after one hour, call your midwife or health care provider again or go to the hospital. If the symptoms go away, take it easy for the rest of the day. If the symptoms stop but come back, call your midwife or health care provider again or go to the hospital.
When you call your midwife or health care provider, be sure to tell the person on the phone that you are concerned about the possibility of preterm labor. The only way your midwife or health care provider can know if preterm labor is starting is by doing an internal examination of your cervix (the bottom of your uterus). If your cervix is opening up (dilating), preterm labor could be beginning.
You and your midwife and/or health care provider are a team, working together to have a healthy pregnancy and healthy baby. Your team works best when both of you participate fully, so your knowledge about preterm labor can be essential in helping to prevent a preterm birth. Talk to your health care provider about all of this, and be sure to keep all of your prenatal care appointments. Preterm birth is one of the complications of pregnancy that health care providers are working hard to eliminate. Your participation in this effort is just as important as theirs!
During pregnancy, you think you have a urinary tract infection.
After delivery, you have abdominal pain, chills and fever, headache, muscle aches or a bad-smelling vaginal discharge.
New, unexplained symptoms develop. Drugs used in treatment may produce side effects.
