“…A mortalidade dos bebês de risco diminuiu, porém a morbidade dessas crianças aumentou, o que põe em foco a necessidade de estudos que visem compreender o desenvolvimento dessas crianças mais vulneráveis (Ferraz & Neves, 2011). No Brasil são escassos os estudos que avaliam os efeitos dos riscos biológicos e das adversidades a eles associadas ao longo do desenvolvimento dessas crianças, especialmente em estudos de coortes (Cardoso et al, 2007;Linhares, Bordin, & Carvalho, 2004).…”

“…18 The prevalence of preterm births was also high even in the presence of adequate prenatal care evaluated according to the recommended minimum number of queries, finding out that the rise in coverage without improving the quality of prenatal care does not reduce the prevalence of early birth. [20][21] Even though the quality of prenatal care has not been the central object of the investigated studies, this has been pointed as a primary factor to be considered regarding the prevention of preterm birth -considering that many of the risk factors can be avoided or minimized through a good prenatal care. In this case, it is recommended that in addition to the improvement of the quality of life of the population (income and education) and increased access to services, it is essential to guarantee the performance of a good quality prenatal.…”
