Born Too Soon – a tweet chat for World Prematurity Day

To mark World Prematurity Day on Sunday 17th November, the BioMed Central journal Reproductive Health published a special supplement entitled Born Too Soon.

We held a Tweetchat to give everyone including parents, researchers and charities, such as Save the Children and Newborn Healthy Network, a chance to discuss some of the key issues raised in the supplement.

On Monday 11th, we published the questions we wanted to discuss, an infographic showing key facts and figures about premature births around the world and then published the Born To Soon supplement in Reproductive Health on Friday 15th November.
