    Smile It is being...

    Dear all,
    I have confused with this gramma "It is being..." for a long time, and here is an example :
    "It is being released amid concern over the rising numbers of preterm births in the United States and the trend of many women and their physicians to schedule Caesarean deliveries, or C-sections, well in advance of the expected due date."

    What is the difference between this and "It is released...". Also, could you explain what is meaning of the bold part "well in advance"? Thank you very much! ^^

    It is being released amid concern over the rising numbers of preterm births in the United States and the trend of many women and their physicians to schedule Caesarean deliveries, or C-sections, well in advance of the expected due date

    Some stative verbs may adopt dynamic senses in certain situations to denote a temporary state or emphasise the dynamic sense.

    well in advance:
    Well is used for emphasis or as an intensifier meaning entirely or fully.
