New research presented at The Pregnancy Meeting™ last week in New Orleans shows that noninvasive prenatal testing can detect more than 80% of chromosomal abnormalities.

In women with late preterm hypertensive disorders of pregnancy, immediate delivery did not decrease the risk of severe adverse maternal outcomes but did increase the risk of neonatal RDS, unlike with expectant monitoring.

The effectiveness of remifentanil patient-controlled analgesia is not equivalent to that of epidural analgesia for pain relief during labor, study finds.

Obesity during pregnancy is an independent risk factor for long-term cardiovascular morbidity, and these complications tend to occur at a younger age, researchers found.

The risk of death in the first 28 days of life was roughly 4 times higher for babies delivered at home by midwives than babies delivered at a hospital by midwives, new research shows.
