According to the new research, women who had miscarriage or abortion run three times the normal risk of having low birth weight babies. The research showed that more miscarriages and abortions a woman has, the greater are the chances of giving birth to underweight child or premature child in the future.
Children born with low birth weight or prematurely are the major contributors of death. According to the research data, the rates of low birth weight and premature births are highest among women who are black, young or old, unmarried and poorly educated.
The research concluded that women should be aware of the potential risks which cause low birth weight or premature birth.
