Nevada gets F for rate of premature births

Nevada has earned an F for its percentage of premature births, according to a state-by-state report card by the national March of Dimes.

The report, released today, says Nevada’s preterm birth rate is 13.9 percent, the highest on the West Coast.

The March of Dimes lists three reasons for Nevada’s high preterm birth rate: a high number of mothers lacking health insurance, smoking, and a rise in early induction labor and C-sections.

Overall, the nation received a D grade.
