ConclusionsAmong women with HELLP syndrome in first pregnancy the occurrence of adverse pregnancy outcomes was substantially reduced in the second pregnancy. However, compared with unaffected women, they were still at greater risk of pregnancy complications.

AbstractWe read with interest, the article by Gidl öf et al on the management of a twin pregnancy with severe preeclampsia and Coronavirus disease‐2019 (Covid‐19) and their call for more liberal testing guidelines in women with high‐risk pregnancies, and agree with their suggestion. A severe complication of preeclampsia is eclampsia. Presenta tions include neurological manifestations such as headache, seizures, loss of consciousness, along with raised blood pressure.

ConclusionsSmoking during pregnancy is associated with an increased risk for GDM. Offspring birthweight is lowest in women, who continue smoking after the first trimester. If pregnancy is complicated by GDM, offspring birthweight is not influenced by smoking.

I once taught a private childbirth education series to a couple in their home. The mom-to-be was excited and eager to learn about her progressing pregnancy, labor and birth, and the importance of postpartum support. Her husband, on the other hand, wasn’t engaged at all. He’d impatiently walk in and out of the room as if the conversation didn’t pertain to him. During the scant few moments he actually joined his wife on the couch, it was abundantly clear that his text messages were far more important to him than anything we were discussing.   At first, I thought that the subject matter might be freakin...

ConclusionsWe present data from 35 cases of exome sequencing applied in a setting of fetal malformations. Importantly, though, we wish to share our personal experiences with implementing WES into a prenatal setting. As a medical society, we must continue to share what we do not understand, what went wrong, what is difficult, and what we do not agree upon. A common understanding and language are warranted. We also advocate that more research is needed concerning the clinical value, as well as costs and patient perspectives, of using WES in pregnancy. We believe that WES will lead to improved prenatal and perinatal care.

AbstractIntroductionPrenatal maternal distress has a negative impact on the course of pregnancy, fetal development, offspring development and later psychopathologies. The study aimed to determine the extent to which the Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID ‐19) pandemic may aggravate pregnant women prenatal distress and psychiatric symptomatology.Material and methodsTwo cohorts of pregnant volunteer women were evaluated, one that was recruited before the COVID ‐19 pandemic (n=496) through advertisements in prenatal clinics in Quebec, Canada, from April 2018 to March 2020; the other (n=1258) was recruited online during the p...

Conclusions: Available data showed that pregnant patients in late pregnancy had clinical manifestations similar to non-pregnant adults. It appears that the risk of fetal distress, preterm delivery and prelabor rupture of membranes (PROM) rises with the onset of COVID-19 in the third trimester of pregnancy. There is also no evidence of intrauterine and transplacental transmission of COVID-19 to the fetus in the third trimester of pregnancies. PMID: 32440660 [PubMed]
