Description
 
Robert L. Goldenberg (ed). Low birthweight newborns (LBN) are those born weighing less than 2,500 grams, either because they are premature (less than 37 weeks’ gestational age) or growth retarded (birthweight less than the 10th percentile for gestational age). Nearly 70% of all infant mortality is associated with low birthweight, as are about 1/3 of all handicapping conditions. LBNs are attributable to a complex interplay among biological, intergenerational, socioeconomic, & behavioral influences. Successful prevention considers the health care delivery system & the social, psychological, & cultural forces that affect the lives of women during their childbirth years.
