Background: Aspirin has been shown to reduce prevalence of both early‐onset pre‐eclampsia (ePET) and fetal growth restriction (FGR). Aims: To determine whether aspirin prescribed for risk of ePET reduces the prevalence of small for gestational age (SGA) neonates. Material and Methods: Two prospective cohorts were consecutively recruited in a large university hospital in Sydney. The Observational cohort (April 2010 to March 2012) validated an algorithm for ePET screening, where risk for ePET was ...

Introduction: The aim of this secondary analysis was to investigate the relationship between maternal body mass index (BMI) and fetal biometry, body composition, and velocity measurements at 28 and 36 weeks gestation.Materials and methods: The current analysis involves 911 overweight or obese women who were randomized to the Standard Care group of the LIMIT randomized trial.Results: The fetus of women with Class 3 obesity (BMI ≥ 40.0) showed the greatest increase in all biometry z-scores, abdomi...

INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between fetal ultrasound and newborn biometry and adiposity measures in the setting of maternal obesity. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The study population involved 845 overweight or obese pregnant women, who participated in the Standard Care Group of the LIMIT randomised trial (ACTRN12607000161426, 9/03/2007). At 36 weeks gestation, fetal biometry, estimated fetal weight (EFW) and adiposity measures including mid-thigh fat mass (MTFM),...

Context: Many international clinical guidelines recommend that overweight and obese women lose weight prior to pregnancy to reduce the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes. Women who have recently given birth and plan future pregnancies are an important target population for preconception weight-loss interventions. Objective: A systematic review to evaluate postpartum dietary and/or physical activity interventions to promote weight loss and improve health in a subsequent pregnancy was conducted. D...

The aim of our study was to evaluate associations between maternal dietary factors and fetal growth and adiposity in overweight and obese women. Women randomised to the ‘Standard Care’ group of the LIMIT trial were included. Maternal dietary factors including Healthy Eating Index, total energy, fat, carbohydrates, protein, glycaemic load and index were measured using the Harvard semi-quantitative Food Frequency questionnaire at time of study entry, 28 and 36 weeks’ gestation. Fetal ultrasound me...

Background Multiple pregnancy is a strong risk factor for preterm birth, and more than 50% of women with a twin pregnancy will give birth prior to 37 weeks' gestation. Infants born preterm are recognised to be at increased risk of many adverse health outcomes, contributing to more than half of overall perinatal mortality. Progesterone is produced naturally in the body and has a role in maintaining pregnancy, although it is not clear whether administering progestogens to women with multiple pregn...
