This study aimed to identify different groups of pregnant women based on their behavioral, psychosocial and socio-economic characteristics and their pregnancy outcomes.In total, 2455 women who were 12 weeks pregnant completed a questionnaire on smoking behavior, health behaviors and psychosocial and socio-economic characteristics. Neonatal and maternal outcomes were extracted from the Dutch perinatal registration. Subgroups were identified with latent class analysis and adverse pregnancy outcomes were compared between subgroups with logistic regression.Women were classified into four latent classes. Two classes represent...

Authors: Ericksen K, Fogel J, Verma RP Abstract Background: The etiopathogenesis of late preterm birth is undetermined. Placental histopathology (PH) reflects adverse intrauterine environment and is documented to be associated with preterm labor and neonatal morbidities. The placental histopathology has not been studied in late preterm infants. Purpose: We investigated placental pathological lesion as markers of adverse intrauterine environment during late preterm labor. Methods: In a retrospective case control study following placental histopathological and clinical variables were compared between late pre...

ConclusionsIVF-OD patients should be considered an independent risk factor for some adverse perinatal outcomes, mainly hypertensive disorders in pregnancy, preeclampsia, and severe preeclampsia. Immunological and hormonal aspects may be involved in these results, and further research focusing in the etiopathogenesis of these pathologies are needed.

ConclusionThese data indicate that diabetes during pregnancy has a negative impact on the development of the hippocampus in the rats. These changes in the volume of hippocampal CA1, DG, and subiculum areas might be at the core of underlying neurocognitive and neurobehavioral impairments observed in the children of diabetic mothers.
