In brief: Short cervix

A "thin" or rather "short" cervix increases your risks of delivering prematurely.
To prevent premature birth your doctor may prescribe vaginal Progesterone or place a stitch in the cervix, called a cerclage. These are proven methods to reduce the chances that you will deliver at less than 34 weeks.
