The greatest risk factors for preterm delivery are: 1) a multifetal pregnancy 2) a history of previous pretem birth that being said, the majority of patients who have delivered a preterm baby go on to deliver at term in subsequent pregnancies.
Talk to your doctor about the possible causes of your previous preterm birth to get a better idea about the future.
