The aim of the present study was to determine whether mothers reporting more life events experience more preterm births following both complicated and uncomplicated pregnancies.
A Life Events Inventory was administered prospectively to women at high risk for poor obstetric and neonatal outcomes who took part in the Pregnancy Home Visiting Program (PHVP), a randomized controlled trial of the effect of a programme of antenatal home visits by midwives on the incidence of preterm birth.
This study took place in Western Australia in the years 1984-1987.
All women in the study had had a previous poor pregnancy outcome.
The women were classified into two groups - those with complicated and those with uncomplicated pregnancies.
