Baby girls born very small or underweight are more likely to struggle with fertility problems as adults. A new study in Sweden looks at more than 1,200 women seeking help for fertility issues. Researchers found that women who had been underweight at birth were twice as likely to have trouble having children.
And women who drink alcohol during the first three months of pregnancy could be raising the risk of a premature birth. British researchers found women who have more than two drinks a week in the first trimester are more than twice as likely to give birth to a small or premature baby. They say the findings suggest pregnant women should abstain from drinking altogether.
