This study will invite healthy women with singleton pregnancies and normal 20 week ultrasounds to participate in the study that will involve completing a demographic questionnaire and meas...
The hypothesis of this study is that maternal and fetal biologic variation in the balance between pro-inflammatory and anti-inflammatory mediators can be measured by currently available te...
In this study, measurements of fetal and maternal head circumference will be collected. This data will be presented in table or graph form. The effect of maternal head circumference on fet...
A newborn's recognition and preference for their mother's voice occurs early in life, very likely during fetal development. Maternal voice stimuli undergo a unique form of cerebral process...
The most common cause of fetal tachycardia is maternal fever. Fetal tachycardia often precedes the maternal fever, and fetal tachycardia confounds the interpretation of electronic fetal m...
Heightened concentration of maternal cortisol is a frequently proposed mechanism linking adverse maternal environments with poor birth outcomes, including birth weight. It is commonly hypothesized tha...
Despite undoubtable benefits of open fetal myelomeningocele (fMMC) repair, there are considerable maternal risks. The aim of this study was to evaluate and systematically categorize maternal complicat...
The relationship between light maternal alcohol consumption and fetal outcome remains contentious and the professional advice women receive is conflicting. The aim of this large epidemiological study ...
This study was a brief review of maternal and fetal thyroid function and pathology during pregnancy.
Third trimester maternal perception of fetal movements is often used to assess fetal well-being. However, its true clinical value is unknown, primarily because of the variability in subjective quantif...
The bond or lack thereof between a pregnant woman and her FETUS.
The degree of antigenic similarity between tissues of the mother and those of the FETUS. Maternal-fetal histocompatibility can determine the acceptance and health of the fetus.
A highly vascularized mammalian fetal-maternal organ and major site of transport of oxygen, nutrients, and fetal waste products. It includes a fetal portion (CHORIONIC VILLI) derived from TROPHOBLASTS and a maternal portion (DECIDUA) derived from the uterine ENDOMETRIUM. The placenta produces an array of steroid, protein and peptide hormones (PLACENTAL HORMONES).
Exchange of substances between the maternal blood and the fetal blood at the PLACENTA via PLACENTAL CIRCULATION. The placental barrier excludes microbial or viral transmission.
A condition in newborns caused by immunity of the mother to PLATELET ALLOANTIGENS on the fetal platelets. The PLATELETS, coated with maternal ANTIBODIES, are destroyed and removed by the fetal MONONUCLEAR PHAGOCYTE SYSTEM. Affected infants may have INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES.
