Effects of restricted caffeine intake by mother on fetal, neonatal and pregnancy outcomes | Cochrane

Caffeine is a stimulant found in tea, coffee, cola, chocolate and some over-the-counter medicines. Conflicting results found in the literature make it difficult for health professionals to advise pregnant women about avoiding caffeine during pregnancy. Clearance of caffeine from the mother's blood slows down during pregnancy. Some authors of observational studies have concluded that caffeine intake is harmful to the fetus, causing growth restriction, reduced birthweight, preterm birth or stillbirth. The newborn could also have withdrawal symptoms if the mother has a high intake of caffeine (more than eight cups of coffee per day).

Haemophilus influenzae type B and viral influenza vaccinations during pregnancy for improving maternal, neonatal and infant health outcomes | Cochrane

Maternal immunisation with Haemophilus influenzae type B (Hib) and viral influenza vaccines may reduce the risk of infections in mothers and infants, however, this is an area of controversy. Both infections can cause severe pneumonia and deaths among children under five years of age, particularly in developing countries. Rates of influenza-associated complications and consequent hospitalisations are substantially higher among pregnant women, infants and newborns. Pregnant women who are vaccinated against influenza have protective levels of anti-influenza antibodies, which can be passively transferred to the infant to improve their health outcomes. Infants of immune mothers usually have influenza symptoms that are delayed in onset and of shorter duration. This review investigated whether vaccinating pregnant women with Hib and viral influenza vaccinations during pregnancy could reduce the risk of infection among mothers and babies and improve health outcomes for both.

Vitamin B6 (pyridoxine) supplementation in pregnancy or labour for maternal and neonatal outcomes | Cochrane

This review could not provide evidence from randomised controlled trials that routine supplementation with vitamin B6 during pregnancy is of any benefit, other than one trial suggesting protection against dental decay. It may cause harm if too much is taken, as amounts well above the recommended daily allowance are associated with numbness and difficulty in walking.

Core Clinical Cases in Obstetrics and Gynaecology Third Edition

You've read your textbook and your course notes. Now you need to apply your knowledge to real life clinical situations. The problem-solving approach of Core Clinical Cases guides you to think of the patient as a whole, rather than as a sequence of unconnected symptoms. With its emphasis on everyday practice strongly linked to underlying theory, the series integrates your knowledge with the realities of managing clinical problems, and provides a basis for developing sound analytical and confident decision-making skills. The core areas of undergraduate study are covered in a logical sequence of learning activities; the same questions are asked of each clinical case, followed by detailed explanatory answers. OSCE counselling cases, with related questions and answers, also feature in each section. Key concepts and important information are highlighted, and the reader-friendly layout reflects exactly the type of question you will encounter, making these volumes the perfect revision aid for all types of case-based examination. The Obstetrics and Gynaecology volume, fully revised and updated in this third edition, focuses on the following topics: * Early pregnancy problems * Pregnancy dating and fetal growth * Late pregnancy problems * Labour * Medical disorders of pregnancy * Puerperium * Abnormal uterine bleeding * Amenorrhoea and menopause * Incontinence and prolapse * Neoplasia * Discharge and pain* Infertility * Fertility control Volumes in the Core Clinical Cases series remain absolutely invaluable in the run up to clinical, written or OSCE examinations, and ideal course companions for all undergraduate medical students at various stages in their clinical training.

Dilatation and curettage procedure raises risk of premature birth in subsequent pregnancies, study finds

Use of dilatation and curettage in cases of miscarriage or for termination increases the risk of preterm birth and very preterm birth (under 32 weeks) in a subsequent pregnancy, a large analysis has found. The study’s lead author has called for a more “restrained use” of the procedure in favour of medical interventions.

Endometriosis is linked to greater risk of complications in pregnancy and birth, study finds

Women with endometriosis have a higher risk of miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy, a large cohort study in Scotland has found. Women with the condition who maintain a pregnancy for more than 24 weeks face further risks, including a higher risk of placenta praevia, bleeding before and after birth, and caesarean section.

Methods for assessing pre-induction cervical ripening, the ability of the cervix to open in response to spontaneous uterine contractions | Cochrane

In this review, researchers from The Cochrane Collaboration examined a comparison between the Bishop score and any other method for checking pre-induction cervical ripening in women admitted for induction of labour. The Bishop score is the traditional method of determining the readiness of the cervix to open (dilate) before labour induction. It also assesses the position, softening and shortening of the cervix, and the location of the presenting part of the baby. After searching for relevant trials up to 31 March 2015, we included two randomised controlled trials that recruited 234 pregnant women.
