Cardiovascular adaptations to pregnancy in sheep and effects of periconceptional undernutrition.

Abstract

The objective of this study was to describe the effects of pregnancy on blood volume and uterine blood flow in sheep, and to test the hypothesis that the effects of periconceptional undernutrition on the late-gestation fetus are mediated by alterations in these parameters.
