OBJECTIVE: This guideline was written to update Canadian maternity care and reproductive healthcare providers on pre- and postconceptional reproductive carrier screening for women or couples who may be at risk of being carriers for autosomal recessive (AR), autosomal dominant (AD), or X-linked (XL) conditions, with risk of transmission to the fetus. Four previous SOGC- Canadian College of Medical Geneticists (CCMG) guidelines are updated and merged into the current document. INTENDED USERS: All maternity care (most responsible health provider [MRHP]) and paediatric providers; maternity nursing; nurse practitioner; provincial maternity care administrator; medical student; and postgraduate resident year 1-7...

UNLABELLED: This review presents the up-to-date information from published resources on the issue of Posterm pregnancy (Medline, Cochrane Database, ACOG, RCOG, SOGC) and complements the presented guidelines. The most of resources are using the term "postterm pregnancy" for pregnancy reaching or exceeding 42+0 weeks and days of gestation, while late pregnancy is defined as a period in between 41+0 and 41+6.The exact determination of gestational age is necessary for exact diagnosis and appropriate management of late and postterm pregnancy, because these pregnancies have increased risk of perinatal morbidity and mortality...

BACKGROUND: The RCOG classification system of CTG trace is widely used for the analysis of the fetal heart rate during the first and second stage of labor. Other authors proposed specific classification systems for the second stage traces. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the accuracy of RCOG and Piquard cardiotocographic patterns classification systems in predicting fetal acidemia in the second stage of labor. STUDY DESIGN: This was a nested retrospective case-control study including fetuses delivered with metabolic acidemia in the second stage of labor and a matched group of non-acidemic fetuses as controls...

Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is one of the leading causes of maternal deaths worldwide. Due to the increasing number of pregnant women with risk factors, the incidence of VTE has risen over the past decades. Mortality and morbidity of VTE are potentially preventable, since more than two-thirds of these women have identifiable risk factors and may benefit from appropriate thromboprophylaxis. The cornerstones for prevention of VTE are the individual and careful assessment of preexisting and new-onset/transient risk factors during pregnancy as well as before and after delivery and a risk-stratified pharmacological thromboprophylaxis...

STUDY QUESTION: What are the maternal risk factors for hyperemesis gravidarum (HG) hospital admission, readmission and reoccurrence in a following pregnancy? SUMMARY ANSWER: Young age, less socioeconomic deprivation, nulliparity, Asian or Black ethnicity, female fetus, multiple pregnancy, history of HG in a previous pregnancy, thyroid and parathyroid dysfunction, hypercholesterolemia and Type 1 diabetes are all risk factors for HG. WHAT IS KNOWN ALREADY: Women with Black or Asian ethnicity, of young age, carrying multiple babies or singleton females, with Type 1 diabetes or with a history of HG were previously reported to be at higher risk of developing HG; however, most evidence is from small studies...

: Intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) is an important cause of perinatal morbidity and mortality and contributes substantially to medically indicated preterm birth; preventing fetal death. Molecular profiling of the mothers' peripheral blood was desired to monitor the health conditions of the fetuses. To develop such a minimally invasive assay, we applied a protein affinity fractionation method to peripheral blood serum samples from pregnant women belonging to either the IUGR or to the control group...

Within the midwifery and medical profession it is tragic that we are still witnessing bullying and poor workplace behaviours in the NHS. The Royal College of Midwives (RCM) and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) have been discussing this since the early 2000s as midwifery and obstetrics feature at the top of General Medical Council (GMC) reporting and NHS surveys. It has come to the point that, as royal colleges, we need to take responsibility, show leadership and do something about this, before waiting for the next set of survey results...

OBJECTIVE: Capturing 'near miss' and severe maternal morbidity using standard definitions is challenging. Information about levels of care required by ill pregnant or recently pregnant women may be more informative. The aim of this study was to prospectively audit incidence, causes, categorisation of maternal morbidity and level of care required by patients admitted to a labour ward high dependency unit (HDU) in a stand-alone obstetric hospital. STUDY DESIGN: All women admitted to HDU from May 5th to November 5th 2014 were identified prospectively and morbidity was categorised according to the Scottish Audit of Severe Maternal Morbidity (SAMM) and World Health Organisation (WHO) definitions of 'near miss' (NM), and 'severe maternal complications' (SMC)...

OBJECTIVE: To develop and assess the performance of a pre-operative ultrasound based endometriosis-staging system (UBESS) that could predict the level of complexity of laparoscopic surgery for endometriosis. METHODOLOGY: Multi-centre prospective and retrospective cohort study on consecutive women with suspected endometriosis that underwent laparoscopy (June 2009 - July 2013). Each woman underwent a systematic transvaginal ultrasound (TVS) evaluation to assess the pelvis for different phenotypes of endometriosis...

CONTEXT/BACKGROUND: Chronic pelvic pain (CPP) is a physically and psychologically debilitating condition. European Association of Urology (EAU) Guidelines (2013) and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) guidelines (2012) place strong emphasis upon multi-speciality assessment and liaison, as well as interdisciplinary assessment and intervention in reference to the management of CPP. OBJECTIVES: The aim was to introduce and describe the development and delivery of an interdisciplinary pain management programme (PMP), at a Specialised Pain Management Centre in Liverpool, United Kingdom, for women diagnosed with CPP...

An anonymous cross-sectional survey with cluster sampling was developed and circulated. All Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) Training Programme Directors (TPD), College Tutors (RCT) and Trainee representatives (TR) across the UK were invited to participate. One hundred and ninety-six obstetricians and gynaecologists participated...

OBJECTIVE: Guidelines for pharmacologic obstetric venous thromboembolism (VTE) prophylaxis from the American Congress of Obstetricians (ACOG), the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG), and the American College of Chest Physicians (Chest) vary significantly. The objective of this study was to determine the practical implications of these recommendations in terms of prophylaxis rates for a tertiary obstetric population. STUDY DESIGN: Cross-sectional...

The Royal College of Obstetricians and emerged in these discussions. Overall, the majority of respondents were open to using this practice in Gynaecologists (RCOG) library recently responded to a question about whether there was any evidence about the practice of offering a cold drink to a pregnant woman in order to encourage fetal movement or improve the reactivity of a cardiotocograph (CTG) trace. Their search conversations with midwives and other practice, which led me to have a number of practitioners about their experience of this...
