A new research is claiming that higher temperature increases the risk of early deliveries. The study claimed that if the temperature crosses 32 Celsius then early labour and baby births increase by 27%.
The research was based on data of 300,000 deliveries from 1981 to 2010 in Montreal which is the second most populous city of Canada.
The women who are under 37 weeks pregnant are not affected by the increased temperature but if they pregnancy is 38 weeks and there are 2 weeks left then within 2 days of higher temperature the chances of early deliveries are increased.
The lead researcher Dr Nathalie Auger said that it may be because of dehydration which impacts the hormones which are responsible for inducing labour.
Early birth means baby will be more prone to health risks. The ratio of death among infants born on 37, 38 weeks is greater than infants who were born on time.
