Effect of treatment of gestational diabetes mellitus on pregnancy outcomes.
TLDR
Treatment of gestational diabetes reduces serious perinatal morbidity and may also improve the woman's health-related quality of life. Expand
The risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes in women who are overweight or obese
TLDR
Obese women are at increased risk of gestational diabetes, pregnancy induced hypertension and pre-eclampsia, and babies of women who were obese were more likely to be large for gestational age and macrosomic compared with those of women with a normal BMI. Expand
Moving beyond essential interventions for reduction of maternal mortality (the WHO Multicountry Survey on Maternal and Newborn Health): a cross-sectional study
TLDR
High coverage of essential interventions did not imply reduced maternal mortality in the health-care facilities the authors studied, and the maternal severity index (MSI) had good accuracy for maternal death prediction in women with markers of organ dysfunction. Expand
Antenatal lifestyle advice for women who are overweight or obese: LIMIT randomised trial
TLDR
For women who were overweight or obese, the antenatal lifestyle advice used in this study did not reduce the risk delivering a baby weighing above the 90th centile for gestational age and sex or improve maternal pregnancy and birth outcomes. Expand
Antenatal interventions for overweight or obese pregnant women: a systematic review of randomised trials
TLDR
This paper presents a systematic review of randomised trials for overweight or obese pregnant women in the Netherlands that found no clear pattern in the results of treatment-related adverse events or adverse events during pregnancy. Expand
Induction of Labour for Improving Birth Outcomes for Women at or Beyond Term
TLDR
A policy of labour induction after 41 completed weeks or later compared to awaiting spontaneous labour either indefinitely or at least one week is associated with fewer perinatal deaths, however, the absolute risk is extremely small. Expand
A Randomized Controlled Trial of Ginger to Treat Nausea and Vomiting in Pregnancy
TLDR
For women looking for relief from their nausea, dry retching, and vomiting, the use of ginger in early pregnancy will reduce their symptoms to an equivalent extent as vitamin B6. Expand
Pregnancy and laboratory studies: a reference table for clinicians.
TLDR
This trial represents the first use of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s Reproductive Health Drug Advisory Committee–endorsed bleeding criteria and collecting it by means of the interactive voice-response system. Expand
Effect of bottles, cups, and dummies on breast feeding in preterm infants: a randomised controlled trial
TLDR
Dummies do not affect breast feeding in preterm infants and cup feeding significantly increases the likelihood that the baby will be fully breast fed at discharge home, but has no effect on any breast feeding and increases the length of hospital stay. Expand
Magnesium sulphate for women at risk of preterm birth for neuroprotection of the fetus.
TLDR
The role for antenatal magnesium sulphate therapy as a neuroprotective agent for the preterm fetus is not yet established and outcomes later in childhood should be evaluated to determine the presence or absence of later potentially important neurologic effects, particularly on motor or cognitive function.
