maternal age and risk of adverse obstetric outcome

Postby caryn » Mon Sep 14, 2009 10:46 am

...Younger mothers had significantly decreased risks of obstetric complications (preeclampsia, caesarean section, operative vaginal delivery and post-partum haemorrhage). Higher prevalence of prematurity and low birth weight in infants born to teenagers were not attributable to young maternal age after adjustment for confounding factors...

Yeah, yeah. Have your babies younger and lower your risk of obstetric complications. No doubt we'll be overhauling our educational system shortly so that we can have our babies in our late teens or early twenties. Any day now. :-p
