ST. LOUIS – You can help develop a non-invasive way to prevent preterm birth.

Researchers at Washington University are working on technology to detect uterine contractions in certain types of high-risk pregnancies. Participants must be at least 18 years old, pregnant, have a high risk pregnancy because of spontaneous preterm birth or cervical length, and plan to deliver at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
