Abstract:

The overall goal of this grant is to examine the effects of physical and psychological stress as risk factors for preterm delivery among an ethnically diverse population of 1 000 active duty military women recruited from the prenatal clinic at Wilford Hall Medical Center. A stress challenge test will be administered to study participants at 24-26 weeks of gestation. Additional data to examine the relationship of preterm delivery with stress and responsivity to stress will be obtained from questionnaires and military and medical records. Thus far 391 participants, 94 of those eligible, have been enrolled 183 have delivered, 15 of them prematurely.
