More than 1,000 premature births a year could be prevented by testing pregnant women for infections, an expert has said.

Testing women for infections 'could prevent 1,000 premature births a year'

"Half of all early deliveries are caused by infections, according to Dr Ronnie Lamont, a consultant in obstetrics and gynaecology at Imperial College London.

He said that screening mothers-to-be and giving them antibiotics if necessary could reduce the number of risky premature births.

His comments came after a study showed that infections are the cause of more early births than previously recognised.

In Britain around 80,000 babies a year are born before 37 weeks of age.

Of these, one in five, or around 17,000, needs intensive care to help them grow and fight off infections."
