Risk factors in mothers and newborn

Risk factors in mothers and newborn

Indian Journal of Pediatrics 54(1): 35-40

One hundred and fifty mothers and their newborn babies were studied over a period of two years in villages around Hyderabad to collect vital data regarding their sociobiological factors, customs and beliefs and to observe the impact of maternal and child health services. A positive correlation was observed between the maternal hemoglobin weight and mid-arm circumference and infants weight; the birth weight rising with an increase in these values. Better results were observed in mothers who received antenatal care. The important risk factors emerging were primigravida, very young mothers, severe anemia (Hb < 8 g/dl) malnutrition in mothers (wt < 40 kg), lack of antenatal care, unhygienic practices during labour, non-availability of trained midwife and harmful, superstitions, taboos and customs prevailing in the area.
