It was observed that number of low birth weight, early neonatal death, low APGAR Score at 1 min, low APGAR Score at 5 min and IUD all were more in anaemic group of mothers.
This was comparable to Rotich et al observation where NICU admission was 15.2%.15 Amongst the reactive CTG group, there were 2.4% stillbirths and 4.1% early neonatal deaths but number of stillbirths and early neonatal deaths (ENND) were much higher in non-reactive CTG group, which were 4.4% and 14.4% respectively.
There was more stillbirths and early neonatal deaths in breech deliveries (3.75%); LBW was significantly (P = 0.001) high in breech deliveries (0.16%).
The objective of this study was to determine the risk of perinatal loss when previous pregnancy ended in stillbirth or early neonatal death. This study will serve to determine the recurrence risk, so that these high risk pregnancies should be monitored frequently and vigilantly in order to reduce risk of recurrent obstetric tragedy.
Although operative vaginal delivery likely does reduce the rate of stillbirth and early neonatal death, the instruments themselves may sometimes cause maternal and fetal injury
The primary outcome in this study was defined as a composite measure of perinatal mortality and intrapartum-related neonatal morbidities (which include early neonatal death, neonatal encephalopathy, meconium aspiration syndrome, and brachial plexus injury).
Bad obstetric history (BOH) implies previous unfavorable fetal outcome in terms of two or more consecutive spontaneous abortions, history of intrauterine fetal death, intrauterine growth retardation, stillbirth, early neonatal death, and/or congenital anomalies (Kumari et al., 2011).
The woman may be offered the option of termination of pregnancy or the option of continuing with her pregnancy with support to help her prepare for a stillbirth or early neonatal death.
All deliveries in which the outcome was a perinatal death (stillbirth or early neonatal death of an infant weighing 500 g or more) or a newborn infant with neonatal encephalopathy were identified, analysed in detail and discussed at the perinatal audit meetings held on a monthly basis at MMH and its satellite MOUs.

Other perinatal outcomes, such as Apgar scores, early neonatal death and admission to the neonatal intensive care unit, were not associated with delivery type, suggesting that elective induction did not offer any advantages to the infant.
