It was my third trip to the hospital that day.
I had a few patients in labor to check on and while I was there, I was called to the ER due to the premature delivery of non-viable twins.

The entire month of November is dedicated to premature birth awareness, and with good reason. Every year, about 15 million babies are born prematurely, or before 37 weeks, across the world.
The United States has one of the highest rates of preterm births among industrialized counties. In 2016, about one in every 10 babies born in the U.S. was premature. The March of Dimes is taking action by raising awareness among expectant mothers and educating the public about how to prevent premature birth.
