Yes: Very much so. It may be limited to placenta only and it may be in early phase of it without affecting the mother or baby.

Chorioamnionitis: You did suffer consequences with the preterm delivery. The chorionic layer along with the amnion were infected and initiated contractions.

choreo: There was an infection but apparently the mother and baby were both able to fight it off.
