    mothers under 18 and over 35 are more likely to have premature babies.

    I think they mean young teens... those under the age of 16... because their bodies haven't stopped growing yet... :think:

    It all very much depends why you may be at risk. I was 19 and 21 when I gave birth to both my preemies but have difficulties carrying anyway. There are prems born to mums of all ages so I don't think it's always more likely if you are younger x
