are we creating preemies?

from Spinning Babies:

The March of Dimes notes a sharp rise in what they call Late Prematurity. Babies who are almost term, but not quite. They attribute this, in large part, to the increase in inductions & cesareans in the US.
One of their points on this petition is
3. We call on hospitals and health care professionals to voluntarily assess c-sections and inductions that occur prior to 39 weeks gestation to ensure consistency with professional guidelines.
I'd like to invite you to join this effort by signing the petition.
