BACKGROUND: Research indicates that anxiety during pregnancy may be a risk factor for the development of alterations in the mental health of the pregnant woman and of obstetric complications. OBJECTIVE: to investigate the effect of music therapy on maternal anxiety, before and after a non-stress test (NST), and the effect of maternal anxiety on the birthing process and birth size. METHODS: 409 nulliparous women coming for routine prenatal care were randomized in the third trimester to receive either music therapy (n = 204) or no music therapy (n = 205) during an NST...

Individual prenatal care is intended to prevent poor perinatal outcomes and provide education to women throughout pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period through a series of one-on-one encounters between a woman and her obstetrician or other obstetric care provider. Concerns regarding increasing health care costs, health care provider availability, dissatisfaction with wait times, and the minimal opportunity for education and support associated with the individual care model have given rise to interest in alternative models of prenatal care...

Posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES) is a newly defined syndrome; therefore, this transient clinical condition is not well known and probably underdiagnosed. It develops quickly with symptoms that are usually indistinguishable from eclampsia. Nurses need to be knowledgeable and aware of identifying symptoms and appropriate treatment. The condition is thought to share pathophysiology with eclampsia, and it is suggested that endothelial dysfunction combined with hypertension causes disruption in the blood brain barrier resulting in cerebral edema...

BACKGROUND: Congenital syphilis (CS), the transmission of Treponema pallidum from mother to fetus during pregnancy, can cause adverse birth outcomes. During 2012-2014, the CS rate in California increased >200% from 6.6 to 20.3 cases per 100,000 live births. Our objectives were to identify characteristics associated with delivering an infant with CS and missed opportunities for prevention among syphilis-infected pregnant women in California. METHODS: We linked California Department of Public Health syphilis surveillance records from women aged 15-45 years - diagnosed during March 13, 2012-December 31, 2014 - to birth records...

BACKGROUND: Congenital syphilis occurs when a pregnant woman with syphilis is not diagnosed or treated and the infection is passed in utero, causing severe infant morbidity and mortality. Congenital syphilis is easily prevented if women receive timely and adequate prenatal care. Cases of congenital syphilis are considered indicators of problems in the safety net. However, maternal social and behavioral factors can impede women's care, even when providers follow guidelines. METHODS: We reviewed case interviews and maternal records for 23 congenital syphilis cases reported to CDC from Indiana between 2014 and 2016...

BACKGROUND: Congenital syphilis (CS) disproportionately affects racial and ethnic minority women, especially in the US South. While CS is relatively easy and inexpensive to prevent through screening and treatment of pregnant women, CS cases have continued to rise and are concentrated in relatively few US counties and states. In 2010, Louisiana had the highest case rate in the country for primary, secondary, and congenital syphilis, with the highest number of CS cases in northwest Louisiana, where Shreveport is located...

Objective To measure the association of preconception health insurance status with preconception health among women in New York City, and examine whether this association is modified by race/ethnicity. Methods Using data from the New York City Pregnancy Risk Assessment Monitoring System 2009-2011 (n = 3929), we created a "Preconception Health Score" (PHS) capturing modifiable behaviors, healthcare services utilization, pregnancy intention, and timely entry into prenatal care. We then built multivariable logistic regression models to measure the association of PHS with health insurance status and race/ethnicity...

This study examined whether the closure of several inpatient obstetric units in rural New Hampshire affected birth outcomes. It is a secondary analysis of birth certificate data from 2005 through 2012 and includes 5881 births. There were no changes in perinatal outcomes. When examining outcomes based on distance travelled to place of birth, controlling for closures, women who traveled greater than 30 miles had fewer prenatal visits and lower birth weight and gestational age infants. Community services that provide prenatal care and/or home visiting are even more important when obstetric units are not available in the community...

BACKGROUND: Infants with Robin sequence (RS) may present with airway compromise at delivery. Prenatal diagnosis would improve preparation and postnatal care. The purpose of this study was to devise a predictive algorithm for RS based on fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS: Retrospective case-control study including fetal MRIs from 2002-2017. Inclusion criteria were: (1) MRI of adequate quality, (2) live-born infant, and (3) postnatal evaluation. Subjects were grouped based on postnatal diagnosis: (1) RS (micrognathia, glossoptosis, airway obstruction), (2) micrognathia without airway obstruction ("micrognathia"), (3) cleft lip and palate ("CLP"), and (4) gestational-age-matched controls...

Androgens have an extensive influence on brain development in regions of the brain that are relevant for autism spectrum disorder (ASD), yet their etiological involvement remains unclear. Hypospadias (abnormal positioning of the urethral opening) and cryptorchidism (undescended testes) are 2 relatively common male birth defects that are strongly associated with prenatal androgen deficiencies. Having either disorder is a proxy indicator of atypical gestational androgen exposure, yet the association between these disorders and autism has not been extensively studied...
