Risk and protective factors for obstetric anal sphincter injuries: A retrospective nationwide study
Abstract BackgroundIn view of the reported increase in obstetric anal sphincter injuries, the objective of this study was to evaluate the incidence of such injuries over time and the associated risk and protective factors. MethodsThis was a retrospective cohort study from a national database of 168 137 primiparous women with term, singleton, cephalic, vaginal delivery between 2008 and 2014. The main outcome measure was obstetric anal sphincter injury. A multivariate regression model was used to identify risk and protective factors. ResultsAge>19 years, birthweight>4000 g, and operative vaginal delivery...

Exclusive breastfeeding in hospital predicts longer breastfeeding duration in Canada: Implications for health equity
We examined the association between maternal education, newborn feeding in hospital, and long‐term breastfeeding duration. MethodsWe studied 3195 Canadian mother‐infant dyads in the CHILD pregnancy cohort. Newborn feeding was documented from hospital records. Caregivers reported sociodemographic factors and infant feeding at 3, 6, 12, 18, and 24 months. ResultsOverall, 97% of newborns initiated breastfeeding and 74% were exclusively breastfed in hospital. Exclusively breastfed newborns were ultimately breastfed longer compared with those who received formula supplementation during their hospital stay (median 11.0 ...
