BACKGROUND: Hypertensive disorders in pregnancy are significant contributors to maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. These disorders include well-controlled chronic hypertension, gestational hypertension (pregnancy-induced hypertension) and mild pre-eclampsia. The definitive treatment for these disorders is planned early delivery and the alternative is to manage the pregnancy expectantly if severe uncontrolled hypertension is not present, with close maternal and fetal monitoring...

SCOPE: Low maternal folate status during pregnancy increases the risk of delivering small for gestational age (SGA) infants, but the mechanistic link between maternal folate status, SGA and placental dysfunction is unknown. microRNAs (miRNA) are altered in pregnancy pathologies and by folate in other systems. We hypothesized low maternal folate status causes placental dysfunction, mediated by altered miRNA expression. METHODS AND RESULTS: A prospective observational study recruited pregnant adolescents, and assessed third trimester folate status and placental function...

Preeclampsia (PE) is a pregnancy-related disease with potentially severe consequences with respect to foeto-maternal morbidity and mortality. However, the molecular pathogenesis of PE remains largely unknown. Recent reports have shown that microRNAs (miRNAs or miRs) may play important roles in the development of PE. Analysing the miRNAs in sera from preeclamptic women may improve our understanding of the pathophysiological mechanisms of the disease. The aim of this retrospective study was to identify whether circulating miRNAs were differentially expressed in PE patients compared with controls...

Though the title of prenatal anxiety disorder didn't mentioned in the literature of the Han and Tang Dynasties, the effect of anxiety on the fetus and its delivery were already recognized. The causes of anxiety were mainly the physical discomfort caused by pregnancy, or the worries about fetus sex, health, appearance, and its fate etc., or the fear of delivery. Although the adjustment methods were often tainted with superstition, yet it could ease the anxiety of pregnant women to some extent.
