BACKGROUND: there have been changes in maternity care policy over the last 20 years and women's experience, continuity and satisfaction with care have become more prominent. However there has been no research examining changes over time in women's reported experience. METHODS: this study used secondary analysis of data collected in four postal surveys of maternity care experiences in 1995, 2006, 2010 and 2014. In each case women who had delivered in a specified time period in England were randomly sampled and sent a questionnaire three months after the birth...

Macrosomic fetuses are at increased risk of obstetric complications, and notably shoulder dystocia, responsible for a severe neonatal morbidity. In case of fetal macrosomia, three options are: (i) the elective cesarean delivery, but this is recommended only when the estimated fetal weight is≥4500g for diabetic women and 5000g for non-diabetic women; (ii) the expectative management, but children with birth weight≥4500 had significantly increased risk of perinatal mortality, neonatal asphyxia, trauma, and cesarean delivery; (iii) the induction of labor which, reducing the possibility of fetal growth, reduce the risk of cesarean delivery for cephalopelvic disproportion and shoulder dystocia...

BACKGROUND: Regional epidural analgesia is considered the gold standard for pain treatment in labour but the epidural catheter placement may be a difficult procedure because of the difficulty in anatomical landmarks palpation. These difficulties increase in pregnant women. Pre-procedure neuroaxial ultrasound may facilitate the procedure. METHODS: Prospectic randomized controlled study conducted in the Labour Ward. We randomized two groups of women undergoing epidural analgesia: Group A (28 patients), with loss of resistance technique and Group B (30 patients) with US assisted procedure...

The incidence of uterine malformations affecting reproduction is difficult to assess. Their identification requires a specific assessment (hysterosalpingography, hysteroscopy, laparoscopy). Spontaneous fertility can be affected depending on the type of uterine abnormality. All these abnormalities can affect the evolution of pregnancy causing early and late miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, threat of premature labour, premature labour, vascular pathologies during pregnancy and inadequate intra-uterine growth. Bicornuate uterus is the most common uterine malformation and represents about half of all uterine anomalies The occurrence of this type of pregnancy is associated with an increased risk of maternal mortality, but early diagnosis and proper monitoring can lead pregnancies to term on malformed uterus...

Foetal monitoring in antenatal period and during labour is done to detect foetal distress and to take necessary action timely in order to improve perinatal outcome. Maternal awareness of foetal movement is routinely recommended in all pregnancies after 28 weeks gestation. In high risk pregnancies like diabetes, foetal growth restriction, macrosomia, additional means of foetal surveillance should be used like antenatal cardiotocography, non stress test, biophysical profile or Doppler studies. Diabetic mothers are at increased risk for sudden intrauterine foetal demise, thereby mandating the need of cardiotocography and ultrasound biophysical profile testing weekly or twice weekly in such patients...

OBJECTIVE: Maternal hyperoxygenation has been reported to increase foetal oxygen saturation, and is frequently employed during intra-partum episodes of foetal compromise as a component of in utero resuscitation. However, there has been little investigation of its influence on foetal haemodynamics, particularly in appropriately grown foetuses. METHODS: This cohort study was undertaken between July 2013 and November 2013. All participants underwent an ultrasound scan prior to active labour (<4 cm dilated), during which foetal biometry, umbilical and middle cerebral artery Dopplers were recorded...

BACKGROUND: Choice of delivery route after previous cesarean delivery can be difficult because both trial of labor after cesarean delivery and elective repeat cesarean delivery are associated with risks. The major risk that is associated with trial of labor after cesarean delivery is uterine rupture that requires emergency laparotomy. OBJECTIVE: This study aimed to estimate the occurrence of uterine rupture during trial of labor after cesarean delivery when lower uterine segment thickness measurement is included in the decision-making process about the route of delivery...

We report a case of pathological foetal Doppler velocity, specifically the absence of end diastolic flow in the umbilical artery (AEDV/REDV), suspected diabetic pregnancy and mesangioproliferative glomerulonephritis, at 32 weeks of gestation. The foetal heart rate tracings were evaluated using a computerised cardiotocogram (Oxford Sonicaid system 8002 Chichester, England) 1 for 20-30 min parallel to the routine cardiotocogram. The ultrasound control at 33 weeks of gestation showed oligohydramnion, foetal centralisation and reduced interval foetal growth...

BACKGROUND: Ultrasound measurement of the antral cross-sectional area of the stomach, performed in the supine position, has been described for preoperative assessment of gastric content in the adult, but, to date, no study has determined the cut-off value of the antral area for the diagnosis of an empty stomach in the parturient. Nevertheless, previous studies in parturients have reported that the use of a simple qualitative grading scale (0 to 2) was reliable for the estimation of the gastric fluid volume...

An epignathus is an extremely rare form of oropharyngeal teratoma that arises from the oral cavity, most commonly from the palate and is associated with a high mortality, secondary to airway obstruction in the neonatal period. We present a case of epignathus, diagnosed on antenatal ultrasound as teratoma. It was associated with polyhydramnios. The mother had presented with preterm labour at 27 weeks of gestation. Astillborn baby girl with a large epignathus was expelled spontaneously 2 hours after admission...

The gold standard for cervical length (CL) assessment is transvaginal ultrasound scan (TVUS). Transperineal ultrasound scan (TPUS) is an alternative route to CL measurement, which may be more acceptable to women. The primary outcome of this study was to investigate the reliability of TPUS performed by obstetrical team on duty in case of preterm labour (PL) and to compare transperineal to transvaginal CL measurements as a reference. Secondary, we aimed to assess the predictive value of transperineal CL measurement for preterm delivery (PD)...

BACKGROUND: Non-elective cervical cerclages are associated with significant perinatal complications. There is scant available information about what the predictors of these outcomes are, thus making counselling difficult. OBJECTIVE: To identify which factors predict delivery at or beyond 28, 34, and 37 weeks' gestation in women with emergency/rescue cervical cerclage. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective cohort study of nonelective cerclages over 10 years in our centre...
