ConclusionsCohort studies in the GCC have predominantly focused on reproductive and medical exposures. Obese pregnant women are at an increased risk of undergoing CS delivery or macrosomic births. Longer-term studies that explore a wider range of environmental and biological exposures and outcomes relevant to the GCC region are needed.Systematic review registrationPROSPERO CRD42017068910

AbstractIntroductionObese primiparae women with induction of labor are at high risk for a cesarean section. There are contradictory results regarding time in induced labor in relation to maternal body mass index (BMI). It is important to characterize the course of induced labor in order to prevent unnecessary cesarean section. We aimed to evaluate whether the duration of labor was associated with maternal BMI in primiparae women with induction of labor.Material and methodsA national retrospective cohort study, including 15 259 primiparae women with a single term pregnancy, admitted for induction of labor from January 2014 ...

We aimed to determine the correlation between antral cross-sectional area as a surrogate of gastric volume measured by gastric ultrasound, and body mass index (BMI) in term pregnant women scheduled for elective cesarean section.MethodsA cross-sectional observational study was c...

Correlation of serum vitamin D, adipose tissue vitamin D receptor, and peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor γ in women with gestational diabetes mellitus. Chin Med J (Engl). 2019 Oct 22;: Authors: Wang HY, She GT, Sun LZ, Lu H, Wang YP, Miao J, Liu KZ, Sun CF, Ju HH Abstract BACKGROUND: Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is a common complication during pregnancy. Obesity and overweight are closely related to metabolic diseases and diabetes. However, the role of adipose tissue in the pathogenesis of GDM remains to be studied. The aim of this study was to investigate the correlation of vita...

ini G Abstract OBJECTIVE: To identify modifiable risk factors associated with early initiation of breastfeeding (EIBF) and exclusive breastfeeding (EBF) in Colombia. DESIGN: Cross-sectional study from the 2010 Colombia nationally representative Demographic Health Survey (DHS). Studied exposures were categorized into five hierarchical blocks of increasing proximity to the outcomes: household, maternal, health systems, child, and early feeding characteristics. The two outcomes examined were delayed breastfeeding initiation among infants

This study explored the appropriate classification of pre-pregnancy body mass index (BMI) in women of childbearing age in Beijing, China. METHODS AND STUDY DESIGN: Women with singleton pregnancies at more than 28 gestational weeks were retrospectively reviewed. Based on the pre-pregnancy BMI (kg/m2), these patients were divided into 7 groups: =18.5-22.9,>=23-23.9,>=24-24.9,>=25-27.9,>=28-29.9, and>=30. Pregnancy adverse outcomes, including gestational hypertension with or without preeclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus, initial cesarean section, postpartum hemorrhage, macrosomia, large-for-gestation...

(BJOG. 2018;125:1558–1566.) Overweight and obesity represent a significant impact on the world’s public health, and are associated with increased risks of adverse maternal and infant outcomes during pregnancy and delivery. As maternal body mass index (BMI) increases, gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) also increases in prevalence. GDM is associated with adverse perinatal outcomes similar to those seen in obese pregnant women, including the need for induction of labor and cesarean section, and having an infant born large for gestational age or birthweight over 4 kg. The aim of this secondary analysis fr...

Authors: Serena C, Comito C, Simeone S, Capannini E, Tosi N, Ottanelli S, Rambaldi MP, Coccia ME, Mecacci F, Petraglia F Abstract BACKGROUND: The aim of the study is to compare the obstetric outcome between single pregnancies obtained by medically-assisted procreation using oocyte donors (MAP-E) versus homologous gametes (MAP-O) and single spontaneous conception pregnancies (SC). METHODS: This is a retrospective case-control study on pregnancy outcome of consecutive singleton live birth pregnancies from MAP-E between January 2011 and August 2017 referred to Careggi University Hospital, Florence.
