OBJECTIVE: Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) comprise an independent, sex-specific risk factor for cardiovascular disease (CVD) in women. This study examined the utility of CVD risk models proposed in the 2016 Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) lipid guidelines to identify women requiring further screening or lipid treatment following HDP. METHODS: Using data collected from the postpartum Maternal Health Clinic (MHC) at Kingston General Hospital in Kingston, Ontario and the Preeclampsia New Emerging Team (PE-NET) cohort study, the study investigators used the models recommended by the CCS guidelines and the cardiometabolic model of life expectancy in each cohort to estimate CVD risk in women after HDP...

OBJECTIVE: Prenatal detection of congenital heart diseases (CHD) decreases morbidity and cost. To improve detections rates, most physicians refer pregnant women with high-risk pregnancies to fetal cardiologists even when there is no suspicion of CHD at the second trimester screening. This paper presents the rationale and detailed method of the Fetal Cardiac Registry of Québec to Improve Resource Utilization in Fetal Cardiology (FREQUENCY) study. The overall objective is to assess the impact of second trimester ultrasound screening (U/S) and referral pattern in fetal cardiology on detection rates, health care costs, and resource utilization, as well as perinatal morbidity and mortality...

This paper provides a practical perspective on some parts of care planning for pregnant women with obesity class III and beyond. Obesity affects childbirth, as there are medical risks to mother and fetus. Moreover, the psychological concerns of the mother and family require careful consideration, notably with an interprofessional team of obstetricians, midwives, anaesthesiologists, pediatricians, and lactation specialists, as well as learners. Pregnant women with obesity likely experience stigmatization and weight bias, as such the health care team should be cognizant of evidence-based medical expertise and of the individual sensitivities of mother...

Pregnant immigrant women without medical insurance often receive inadequate prenatal care. They are more likely to present late in their pregnancy for care, to receive less prenatal testing, and to receive inadequate prenatal follow-up. There is a documented association between inadequate prenatal care and poor birth outcomes, including preterm delivery and low birth weight. Caring for uninsured women causes stress for physicians and health care teams. A standardized approach to caring for uninsured pregnant women has the potential to improve access to care while providing a framework to healthcare providers that may decrease the tensions that arise within health care teams caring for these patients...
