However, measuring weight at birth and documenting the toll of low birth weight with its various factors in Ethiopia is not well. studied. Hence, the main aim of this study was to determine prevalence and identify factors affecting birth weight of newborns born at Debre Markos Referral Hospital, Northwest Ethiopia. Methods : An institutional based cross-sectional study was employed among mothers who gave a live birth neonate at Debre Markos Referral Hospital from January 01 to February 30. A total of 227 mother-newbor

This has improved the diagnosis and treatment of the Obstetric Anal Sphincter Injuries (OASIS) are those determined as third and fourth grade [1]. OASIS occurs in 0.5–14% of vaginal deliveries worldwide in the world, despite the increased acknowledgment of it and its intensive training efforts for trainees, the incidence has grown up or augmented has increased in recent decades [2,3]. Although the main objective of medical research is the prevention of OASIS, the initial postoperative management is overlooked, it means, suboptimal or deficient medical care in these women.

How Do the Different Types of Diabetes Influence Pregnancy Outcomes? Retrospective study from January 2017 to Dec 2018 at Khoula hospital

  Abstract Objective: The aim of our study was to determine the prevalence of diabetes in labouring women from January 2017 to December 2018 and compare the feto-maternal outcomes of GDM, Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Methodology: A retrospective cohort of diabetic women in pregnancy who delivered at Khoula hospital were identified from the electronic medical record system in Khoula hospital, Muscat, Oman from January 2017 to December to 2018 and analysed for feto-maternal parameters. Results: 11190 files were analysed, 2859 (25.5%) patients were identified to have diabetes. 437 patients were excluded and 2422 were selected. Overall prevalence of diabetes was 25.8%. 2062 (85.1%) had GDM, 329 (13.5%) NIDDM and 38(1.56%) had IDDM. Mean age was 32.8+/- 4.6yrs. The obesity rate in the cohort was 60.3% and overall mean BMI was 31.7+/- 5.2. Optimum control was achieved in 89.5% of women. Mean gestational age of delivery was 38+/- 1.2 wks. Macrosomia was seen in 5.7% a

Lifestyles and Weight Control During Pregnancy

  Short Communication One of the main tools that midwives have had over the years has been their educational ability. The usefulness of a good health education has been more than demonstrated in the available literature [1]. It could be said that it is a resource at the service of the population and that it can modify lifestyles if it is used properly [2]. An important reason to think about the need to introduce weight control guidelines during pregnancy is that being overweight during pregnancy is a potentially modifiable risk, the work of [3]. examined the efficacy of a behavioral weight control intervention in pregnant women of about 13 weeks who were provided information about healthy nutrition and physical exercise, their results revealed that weight gain during pregnancy was decreased and postpartum weight [3]. Due to this, it seems to be advisable, as indicated by the work of [4]. to assess the weight of women at each gestational control visit, since pregnancy is a time of g
