It can be especially dangerous for those with cardiovascular or chronic diseases — and several studies have identified an increased risk of preterm delivery and stillbirth after heat exposure. STAT’s Nalis Merelli reported yesterday on a new study that confirms the link to early deliveries at a massive scale. The research, published last week in JAMA Network Open, looked at more than 53 million singleton births that occurred in the 50 most populous U.S. cities during the hottest months of the year between 1993 and 2017. After a heat wave, preterm births increased by 2% and early births by 1%. But the effects were uneven: Mothers who were 29 or younger, had a lower level of education, and belonged to a minority ethnic or racial group saw a 4% increase in preterm births, and a 3% increase in early deliveries.
