A translational prospective experimental study in the delivery ward in Linköping. The study population will include women in two BMI groups (underweight/normal weight and overweight/obese) during first stage of labor with singleton full term pregnancy and cephalic presentation.The BMI is calculated from weight and height registered at the first antenatal visit around week 8-12. At the delivery ward, if the women are in need of labor augmentation with oxytocin infusion, a peripheral venous catheter will be placed in the contralateral arm from the arm where oxytocin will be administrated. The oxytocin infusion will be prepared to a concentration of 10 mU/ml and will be given according to a standardized protocol or to an infusion level giving maximum of 5 uterine contractions per 10 minutes. Blood samples for measuring plasma levels of oxytocin will be taken prior to start and before every increase in the rate of oxytocin infusion. The blood samples will be collected through the first stage of labor.

Maternal deaths resulting from complications of pregnancy and childbirth in a given population.
Excess blood loss from uterine bleeding associated with OBSTETRIC LABOR or CHILDBIRTH. It is defined as blood loss greater than 500 ml or of the amount that adversely affects the maternal physiology, such as BLOOD PRESSURE and HEMATOCRIT. Postpartum hemorrhage is divided into two categories, immediate (within first 24 hours after birth) or delayed (after 24 hours postpartum).
Testing erythrocytes to determine presence or absence of blood-group antigens, testing of serum to determine the presence or absence of antibodies to these antigens, and selecting biocompatible blood by crossmatching samples from the donor against samples from the recipient. Crossmatching is performed prior to transfusion.
The health of women during PREGNANCY; childbirth and the POSTPARTUM PERIOD.
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.
Blood is a specialized bodily fluid that delivers necessary substances to the body's cells (in animals) – such as nutrients and oxygen – and transports waste products away from those same cells. In vertebrates, it is composed of blo...
