Past research notes that Vitamin C can help you to avoid preterm labor. Good news since so many yummy foods contain vitamin C. During your pregnancy you should be getting at least 85mg of vitamin C daily, although more won't hurt you. Vitamin C helps to strengthen your body's membranes and that includes the amniotic membranes as well. You want a strong amniotic bag because if it ruptures you may have a preterm labor and birth.
