The nutritional status of women affects pregnancy outcomes. Preconception care adequately prepares women for the demands of pregnancy. The aim of this study was to evaluate the prepregnancy iron status of nulliparous women in Ghana to provide empirical data to inform policy formulation.
Women's nutrition, starting from infancy through the school age years, early adulthood, during pregnancy and lactation, and between pregnancies has the potential to affect the health and well-being of the next generation. Nutrition education and counseling (NEC) during pregnancy can improve pregnancy outcomes but dietary habits are influenced by practices prior to conception. Observational studies support the importance of nutrition during the peri-conceptional period for improving birth outcomes, but evide...
Psoriasis is a common disorder that can occur at any age, but the majority occurs before 45 years. We are increasingly seeing women of childbearing age in our systemic medication clinics. Recent BAD guidelines on biologics address issues pertinent to treatment of women during pregnancy but there is no reference to preconception advice on Measles Mumps Rubella (MMR) vaccination.
Vitamin D deficiency in pregnancy is reported as a prevalent public health problem.
Diabetes mellitus (DM) increases the risk of adverse maternal and neonatal outcomes, and optimization of glycemic control during pregnancy can help mitigate risks associated with diabetes. However, studies seldom focus precisely on maternal blood glucose level prior to pregnancy. We aimed to evaluate the associations between preconception blood fasting plasma glucose (FPG) level and subsequent pregnancy outcomes.
Life expectancy for individuals with cystic fibrosis (CF) has significantly increased during the last few decades, and subsequently, more women with CF are considering pregnancy. A detailed understanding of the management of pregnancy, specific pulmonary treatments, and necessary medications is essential to provide specialized care for women with CF. In this article, we present the physical and psychosocial aspects of care for pregnant women with CF and describe a case involving the planned pregnancy of a n...
Globally, over half of pregnancies in developed countries are unplanned. Identifying and understanding the prevalence and complexity surrounding pregnancy preparation among Australian women is vital to enable sensitive, responsive approaches to addressing preconception and long-term health improvements for these women with varying motivation levels.
Evidence for the effect of preconception and periconceptional risk factors on childhood outcomes such as obesity and other non-communicable diseases (NCDs) in later life is growing. Issues such as maternal malnutrition need to be addressed before pregnancy, to prevent a transgenerational passage of risk of NCDs. The aim of this review was to evidence for preconception interventions to prevent obesity and other risk factors for NCDs in children. A search for systematic reviews of interventions in the preconc...
Appropriate contraception and preconception counseling are critical for women of reproductive age with systemic autoimmune diseases (AIDs) because clinical diagnosis, rheumatology medications, and disease activity may impact the safety or efficacy of certain contraceptives as well as the risk of adverse pregnancy outcomes. The presence of antiphospholipid (aPL) antibodies (anticardiolipin, anti-β2 glycoprotein I, and lupus anticoagulant) is the most important determinant of contraception choice, as women w...
Women who experience pregnancy loss are especially prone to high stress, though the effects of stress on reproductive outcomes in this vulnerable population are unknown. We assessed relationships between perceived stress and hormones, anovulation, and fecundability among women with prior loss.
Excess gestational weight gain has long- and short-term implications for women and children, and postpartum weight retention is associated with an increased risk of long-term obesity. Despite the existence of dietary and exercise guidelines, many women struggle to return to pre-pregnancy weight. Experiences of women in tackling postpartum weight loss are poorly understood. We undertook this study to explore experiences related to nutrition, exercise and weight in the postpartum in women in Ontario, Canada.
Maternal nutrition status (e.g. dietary/nutrient intake) during pregnancy has been associated with pregnancy outcomes including birth weight, infant survival and metabolic health of the offspring during later life. During the past few years, maternal dietary intake, at least three months before conception, has been shown to affect pregnancy outcomes also. However, literature investigating this link is still scarce. The studies that have looked at preconception dietary intake in relation to pregnancy outcome...
To identify determinants of preconception preparation among women with planned pregnancies.
Midlife women have a higher risk of cardiometabolic disease than younger women, but the lifelong biological/lifestyle factors responsible for this increase are unclear.
Chronic health conditions can pose risks for pregnancy and childbearing which may be mitigated by preconception care and pregnancy planning. The objective of this study is to identify the proportion of pregnancies reported as unplanned among women in New Zealand with chronic health conditions and the co-occurrence of these pregnancies with socioeconomc disadvantage.
The improvement in surgical techniques has contributed to an increasing number of childbearing women with complex congenital heart disease (CCC). However, adequate counseling about pregnancy in this situation is uncertain, due to a wide variety of residual cardiac lesions.
Introduction To provide quality family planning services and reduce racial and socioeconomic disparities in unintended pregnancy and pregnancy outcomes, primary care clinicians should routinely assess women's reproductive health needs and provide patient-centered contraceptive and preconception counseling. One Key Question® asks women if they would like to become pregnant in the next year and prompts clinicians to provide counseling appropriate to each patient. We conducted a pilot study to assess if imple...
Women with prosthetic heart valves are at higher risk for adverse outcomes during pregnancy. The rates of achieved pregnancy, regardless of the pregnancy outcome, are largely unknown in this group of women.
Pregnant women are recommended to engage in 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity per week to reduce pregnancy complications. Many women struggle to remain physically active throughout pregnancy, and there is no consensus about whether women adopt a less efficient movement pattern as they progress through pregnancy and experience gestational weight gain. This study assessed the change in energy expenditure and mechanical efficiency in pregnant women (PREG; N=10) when performing a walking tread...
Although fatty acids are involved in critical reproductive processes, the relationship between specific fatty acids and fertility is uncertain. We investigated the relationship between preconception plasma fatty acids and pregnancy outcomes.
Smartphone apps have emerged as a mode for provision of information to women during pregnancy. More apps are available for pregnancy than for any other medical topic. This review aimed to assess the quality of Android pregnancy apps, including pregnancy-specific nutrition information.
Thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer have become increasingly common worldwide. When discovered during pregnancy, they pose unique diagnostic and therapeutic challenges for both the treating physician and the patient. The benefits of treatment should be carefully weighed against risks that may adversely impact maternal and fetal health. In this review, we present current knowledge and controversies surrounding the management of thyroid nodules and thyroid cancer in pregnancy, in the post-partum period and dur...
Use of cannabis during pregnancy is on the rise, yet little is known about how women administer cannabis during the perinatal period. This study examined self-reported modes of cannabis administration among women in the year before and during pregnancy, and their association with self-reported cannabis use frequency using data from 585 women screened in 2018-2019 for cannabis use during standard prenatal care in two medical centers in Northern California. The prevalence of cannabis use was 12% before pregna...
Clinical practice guidelines advocate the importance of continuing professional development (CPD) that supports health professionals (HPs) to discuss the sensitive topic of maternal weight management with women. However, there is a lack of accredited CPD related to this important area of preconception and antenatal care. Therefore, aims were to evaluate HPs' reactions to accredited online CPD regarding weight management for pregnancy and their knowledge, attitudes, confidence, and commitment to provide wome...
The risk of vascular events during pregnancy is substantially increased. Beyond comparatively frequent vascular diseases, pregnancy may lead also to the development of exceptionally rare vascular events such as the aortic dissection and aortic rupture which are conceivably endangering life conditions. Women with the connective tissue disorders and with a family history of the aorta diseases are especially prone to the aortic complications which may also develop in the absence of these risk factors due to th...
