Pregnancy and perinatal outcomes of Coronavirus (CoV) spectrum infections, and particularly COVID-19 disease due to SARS-COV-2 infection during pregnancy were reported, including miscarriage, preterm birth, pre-eclampsia, pre term prelabor rupture of membranes, fetal growth restriction, and mode of delivery.

Twins: prevalence, problems, and preterm births.
The rate of twin pregnancies in the United States has stabilized at 32 per 1000 births in 2006, and tocolytics should be used judiciously and only for a limited time (<48 hours) in twin births. Expand
Cerclage for Short Cervix on Ultrasonography: Meta-Analysis of Trials Using Individual Patient-Level Data
In the subgroup analysis of singleton gestations with short cervical length, especially those with a prior pre term birth, cerclage may reduce preterm birth, and a well-powered trial should be carried out in this group of patients. Expand
Practice guidelines for performance of the routine mid‐trimester fetal ultrasound scan
The ISUOG Clinical Standards Committee (CSC) has a remit to develop Practice Guidelines and Consensus Statements as educational recommendations that provide healthcare practitioners with a consensus-based approach for diagnostic imaging. Expand
Preventing the first cesarean delivery: summary of a joint Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and American College
Key points were identified to assist with reduction in cesarean delivery rates including that labor induction should be performed primarily for medical indication; if done for nonmedical indications, the gestational age should be at least 39 weeks or more and the cervix should be favorable, especially in the nulliparous patient.

The maternal methadone dosage does not correlate with neonatal withdrawal; therefore, maternal benefits of effective methad one dosing are not offset by neonatal harm. Expand
Prescription drug use during pregnancy: a population-based study in Regione Emilia-Romagna, Italy
A large proportion of women who gave birth in RER in 2004 were exposed to prescription medications, including several statin medications were among the most common contraindicated drug exposures. Expand
Preventing the First Cesarean Delivery: Summary of a Joint Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and American College
The prudent use of labor induction, and the expectation that well-defined criteria be met before CD is performed for failure of induction or failure of progress in labor, may actually prevent many unnecessary first CDs. Expand
Fetal fibronectin testing for reducing the risk of preterm birth.
An association between knowledge of FFN results and a lower incidence of preterm birth before 37 weeks is found, and further research should be encouraged. Expand
Obstetricians seldom provide postpartum diabetes screening for women with gestational diabetes.
OBJECTIVE We aimed to determine whether obstetrician-gynecologists provided postpartum type 2 diabetes mellitus screening for women with a history of gestational diabetes. STUDY DESIGN WeExpand
