5. Obesity is one key factor helping explain the high rate of preterm births in the U.S.

"Babies born to women who are overweight or obese are more likely to be delivered prematurely, and the heavier the mother's weight, the greater the risk, a study shows.

Obesity is a well-established risk factor for a long list of pregnancy and birth complications, including miscarriage, gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, and cesarean delivery."
