INTRODUCTION High birthweight is associated with complicated childbirth. The aim of the present study was to investigate the association between birthweight, mode of delivery, and neonatal complications among infants born at term with a birthweight ≥3000 g. MATERIAL AND METHODS This population-based cohort study used data from the Swedish Medical Birth(More)
