Abstract null null Objective null In the prospective multicenter Genesis study, we developed a prediction model for Cesarean delivery (CD) in term nulliparous women. The objective of this secondary analysis was to determine whether the Genesis model has the potential to predict maternal and neonatal morbidity associated with vaginal delivery. null null null Study Design: null The national prospective Genesis trial recruited 2,336 nulliparous women with a vertex presentation between 39+0- and 40+...

Summary null null Background null Accurate early risk-prediction for gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) would target intervention and prevention in women at the highest risk. We evaluated maternal risk-factors and parameters of body-composition to develop a prediction model for GDM in early gestation. null null null Methods null A prospective observational study was undertaken. Pregnant women aged between 18 and 50 y of age with gestational age between 10 and 16 weeks were included in the study...

OBJECTIVE To determine whether the addition of placental growth factor (PlGF) measurement to current clinical assessment of women with suspected pre-eclampsia before 37 weeks' gestation would reduce maternal morbidity without increasing neonatal morbidity. DESIGN Stepped wedge cluster randomised control trial from 29 June 2017 to 26 April 2019. SETTING National multisite trial in seven maternity hospitals throughout the island of Ireland PARTICIPANTS: Women with a singleton pregnancy between 20+...

BACKGROUND: Post-term pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of maternal complications, respiratory distress and trauma to the neonate. Amniotic membrane sweeping has been recommended as a simple procedure to promote the spontaneous onset of labour. However, despite its widespread use, there is an absence of evidence on (a) its effectiveness and (b) its optimal timing and frequency. The primary aim of the MILO Study is to inform the optimal design of a future definitive randomised trial ...

AbstractIntroduction: Individual placental and umbilical cord morphometry have been previously identified to have an association with fetal growth. This study aims to identify which of the morphometric measurements in combination are associated with pregnancies with small for gestational age (SGA) infants using digital imaging of the delivered placenta.Material and methods: This study examined 1005 placentas from consecutively delivered singleton pregnancies in a tertiary center. Standardized im...

OBJECTIVE: Contemporary approaches to monitoring quality of care in obstetrics often focus on comparing Cesarean Delivery rates. Varied rates can complicate interpretation of quality of care. We previously developed a risk prediction tool for nulliparous women who may require intrapartum Cesarean delivery which identified five key predictors. Our objective with this study was to ascertain if patient heterogeneity can account for much of the observed variation in Cesarean delivery rates, thereby ...

Gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM) is an increasing problem worldwide. Postnatal hypoglycaemia and excess foetal growth are known important metabolic complications of neonates born to women with diabetes. This retrospective cohort study aims to determine the influence of obesity and glucose intolerance on neonatal hypoglycaemia and birth weight over the 90th percentile (LGA). Data were abstracted from 303 patient medical records from singleton pregnancies diagnosed with GDM. Data were recorded ...
