Prevalence and risk factors for inappropriate birth weight for gestational age

, such as short stature, prepregnancy underweight, poor gestational weight gain, prior history of SGA, smoking, and cardiovascular-associated diseases [6-11]. By contrast, maternal diabetes, obesity, multipara, excessive gestational weight gain, and post-term pregnancy were associated with LGA [ 3 , 6 , 9 , 11 - 13 ]. However, there are only limited studies regarding this issue in Thailand. We aimed to determine the prevalence of inappropriate birth weight for gestational age among women with uncomplicated pregnancies who gave birth to a live born infant at term

Variables on body weight gain during pregnancy (i.e. gestational weight gain) in relation to body mass index (BMI) before pregnancy were used according to the Institute of Medicine guidelines (US) ( 17 ). The data were analysed by SPSS programme. Descriptive analysis, analysis of variance (ANOVA), x 2 test, correlation and multivariate analyses (multiple linear and multiple logistic regression) were

Assessment of physical activity status among pregnant women in southwestern China

1 Introduction Since early years of this century, the benefits of exercise during pregnancy have been realized and pregnant women have been encouraged to do regular physical activity in the absence of medical or obstetric complications. 1 Studies have reported that physical activity during pregnancy may reduce the risk of pregnancy complications such as excessive gestational weight gain, 2 , 3 gestational diabetes, 4 , 5 preeclampsia, 6 and cesarean delivery. 7 In the acknowledgment of these benefits, several physical organizations endorse physical

incidence of deliveries at home without a medical or midwifery assistance, which has resulted in poor perinatal outcomes. The incidence of adolescent Roma mothers in our case is high, and pregnancy and childbirth can be associated with perinatal complications. Authors from Canada found a higher incidence of neonatal complications and an increased incidence of fetal asphyxia in adolescent mothers, which they attribute to a lower socioeconomic status, inadequate prenatal care and inadequate gestational weight gain in adolescent pregnant women ( 41 ).
