Study Finds In Utero Surgery Preferable to Surgery After Birth for Children with Spina Bifida

In a study to be presented today at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine’s annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting ™, in Dallas, Texas, researchers will report findings that show that, for children with spina bifida, surgery conducted while the fetus is still in utero as opposed to surgery on a newborn is more cost effective due to the costs associated with caring for a child with significant deficits.

Study Finds Prior Preterm Delivery Indicates Subsequent Baby Will Be Small Even if Carried to Term

In a study to be presented today at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine’s annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting ™, in Dallas, Texas, researchers will report findings that indicate that women who deliver their first baby early are more likely to have a subsequent baby that is small for its gestational age, even when the second pregnancy is carried to term.

2011: Study finds that even with confirmation of fetal lung maturity, babies delivered prior to 39 weeks are at significant risk

In a study to be presented today at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine’s (SMFM) annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting ™, in San Francisco, researchers will present findings that show that despite fetal pulmonary maturity, babies delivered at between 36 to 38 weeks, still have a significantly increased risk of neonatal morbidities.

2010: Study finds in women with intrauterine growth restrictions, waiting for natural birth and inducing equally effective

This past February, at the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine’s (SMFM) annual meeting, The Pregnancy Meeting ™, in Chicago, researchers presented findings that showed that waiting for birth is as effective as inducing labor in cases of intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR).
