IJERPH, Vol. 18, Pages 10727: Investigating Caesarean Section Practice among Teenage Romanian Mothers Using Modified Robson Ten Group Classification System

This study was designed as a one-year prospective analysis and considered all women younger than 20 years of age who delivered in a tertiary care hospital. Before discharge, women who had caesarean delivery responded to a questionnaire regarding their education, prenatal surveillance, and obstetrical history. Caesarean sections accounted for 47.01% of all births. A proportion of 24.57% of the participants had at least one previous caesarean section. Group 10 (all women with a single cephalic preterm pregnancy) was second most often identified among women in middle adolescence (14.03%); 32.20% of the participants in late adolescence were in group 5 (multiparas with a scarred uterus, single cephalic term pregnancy). Differences between the two age groups were not statistically different (p = 0.96). Abnormal cardiotocographic findings (38.23%), the arrest of descent (19.11%) and arrest of dilation (19.11%), were the most frequent indications for caesareans in Robson group 1. Neonates from mothers in Robson groups 8 (women with a multiple pregnancy) and 7 (multiparas single breech pregnancy) had the most unfavourable outcomes regarding gestational age at delivery and admission to the intensive care unit. We concluded that future focus on obstetrical management is mandatory in Robson groups 7 and 8. Adolescents in Robson group 1 (nulliparas, single cephalic term pregnancy, spontaneous labour) are the primary beneficiaries of strategies to reduce caesarean sections rates.

Conclusion: Daily maternal consumption of yogurt, cheese, and tarhana during pregnancy was less common in FPIAP. The diversity of traditional Turkish homemade FFs may reduce the risk of FPIAP, whereas maternal smoking and a higher maternal educational status were associated with an increased risk of FPIAP.Int Arch Allergy Immunol
