The maternal details like demographic profile, anaemia, bacterial vaginosis, gestational hypertension, previous history of preterm delivery, urinary tract infection, Rh isoimmunization, multiple pregnancy, heart disease, congenital malformation of uterus, first trimester bleeding, medical complications during pregnancy, antepartum haemorrhage, definite cause of preterm labour if any, treatment profile, intranatal
care and delivery outcome was collected.
Stillbirth is a useful marker to measure the value of antenatal and intranatal
A retrospective cohort study exploring the relationship between antenatal reflexology and intranatal
In addition, maternal diabetes, multiparity, fetal macrosomia, presence of obstetric brachial plexus stroke in the previous child, intrauterine torticollis, breech presentation, assisted delivery, extended delivery period may be included in the other intranatal
risk factors (8).
These findings suggest that while intranatal
hormonal environment can trigger the development of certain cancers, once the cancer develops, its behavior is independent from early-stage hormonal environment.
hypoxic event did not cause the injury, proven by the fact that, after terbutaline was administered, the FHR promptly normalized.
hypoxic-anemic encephalopathy often leads to severe neurological damages in postnatal period.
In most of the cases these maternal deaths can be prevented by improving the antenatal, intranatal
and postnatal maternal care.
The survey determines the quality of maternal care services across multiple parameters during the antenatal, intranatal
, and postnatal period and estimates the gaps between the actual quality of care and national minimal care standards.
In fact, the number of maternal health units in the Ministry of Health--including ante-natal, intranatal
, perinatal and adolescent care, obstetrics and gynaecological clinics and child development centres--demonstrates the Government's interest in this area.
