Perinatal promotive and protective factors for women with histories of childhood abuse and neglect - Atzl VM, Grande LA, Davis EP, Narayan AJ.
BACKGROUND: Integrative research summarizing promotive and protective factors that reduce the effects of childhood abuse and neglect on pregnant women and their babies' healthy functioning is needed. OBJECTIVE: This narrative systematic review synt...
Authors: De Vloo C, Nevens F Abstract Pruritus is a common, troublesome symptom in patients with cholestatic liver diseases, especially frequent in intrahepatic cholestasis of pregnancy (ICP) and in primary biliary cholangitis (PBC). Cholestatic associated pruritus can have profound effects on the quality of life. The underlying mechanism is still poorly understood. Severe potential pruritogens have been discussed, such as bile salts, opioids, steroid and lysophosphatidic acid (LPA), but none of these are considered as key mediators. Because of this unraveling pathophysiology the treatment of hepatogenic pruritus o...

In view of apparent growth stimulatory effects of dominance within the social group that is observed in social mammals, they d...
ConclusionOur findings revealed that women with low MUAC were more likely to have an inadequate gestational weight gain rate during pregnancy whereas higher MUAC was associated with an excessive gestational weight gain rate. MUAC may be a useful indicator of nutritional status associated with GWG. Routine measurement of MUAC in pregnant women may help health professionals, particularly in middle-income countries, to counsel women about gestational weight gain.
ConclusionsResveratrol supplementation during embryo transfer cycles appears to be detrimental for pregnancy outcomes. To be clinically useful, an analysis of the supplementation protocol and randomized controlled study are needed.
Conclusion:Prenatal LPS-induced reduction in neurogenesis was dissociated from anxiety-like behavior in adult female rats. Furthermore, the long-lasting impact of prenatal LPS on neurogenesis in female offspring was age-dependent.

ConclusionsFrom the few cases reported so far it is impossible to draw any conclusions regarding frequency, risk factors, and outcome, but the overall prognosis for newborns seems good. Because it can be associated with potentially severe neonatal infections, autoimmune neutropenia in childbearing mothers should be closely monitored in collaboration with gynecologists and pediatricians.
We report the delayed delivery of a second baby in a twin pregnancy with pPROM and very premature delivery of the first baby. This condition is exceptional and there are no validated medical protocols for its management; the scientific evidence is still controversial. In our case, after the birth of the first baby, pregnancy was continued for 29 days, with monitoring of maternal and fetal parameters, which enabled the delivery of the second baby with improved neonatal outcomes. This case supports the prolongation of the pregnancy of the second twin.
