Every year over 1 million babies die because they are born too soon

(Vatican Radio) Each year 15 million babies are born too soon and more than 1 million of them will die before their first birthday. Experts says premature birth is the leading cause of newborn death each year and November the 17th has been designated World Prematurity Day to raise awareness about pre-term births and how they can be prevented. Dr Edward McCaid is the Chief Medical Officer for the March of Dimes organization, a U.S. charity that seeks to raise global awareness about the problem of premature births. He spoke to Susy Hodges.
