Preterm birth is the leading cause of newborn death. Many premature survivors have serious and lifelong complications like cerebral palsy, learning and developmental disabilities, and hearing and vision impairment . An accurate, predictive tool for preterm birth risk assessment does not exist. This research works towards developing tools based on mechanical measures of the cervix to assess risk for preterm birth.
