Abstract

In Poland an impressive decline in perinatal and neonatal mortality rate has been observed during the past decade. A further improvement will be hindered by such new phenomena like multiple gestation following assisted procreation and a higher risk of preterm birth arising from it as well as age increase among pregnant women. Prematurity rate is also more and more frequently influenced by preterm births induced due to threat to the life of the mother or the fetus. All these factors should be taken into consideration in preventive actions and health programs over the mother and the child.
