Researchers in Gothenburg could be about to find a method where they can tell which pregnant women are due to give birth within the next seven days.

The method could mean better care for those women about to go into labour, but also give better help for those mothers-to-be with early labour pains, but who are not about to give birth.

On average only 30 percent of women with early contractions actually give birth early, according to news agency TT.
