If I was born prematurely, can I have a normal pregnancy?

Yes. The great majority of women born as preemies can have normal pregnancies. Exceptions would be women who were very ill as preemies and ended up with long-term medical problems. Legs or hips contractures from cerebral palsy make it harder to get into a good position for vaginal delivery. Short-gut syndrome after necrotizing enterocolitis makes it hard for a pregnant woman to get enough nutrition.
