Prematurity is probably the major factor associated with brain damage in newborns. Our growing knowledge of the biochemical mechanisms leading to the onset of labour at term allows the biochemical correlates of the epidemiological risk factors for prematurity to be understood. Infection is the major cause of early preterm labour and is now recognised to be a major cause of fetal cerebral damage leading to cerebral palsy. Only some 5% of cerebral palsy is due to intrapartum asphyxia at term. This may occur due to an obstetric catastrophe or through inadequate placental function leading to chronic intrapartum asphyxia.
