This Epidemiological Perinatal Database Contains Information on Obstetrical Risk Factors : A Part from The Book Chapter : A Retrospective Analysis on the Urgent Need to Optimize Gestation Weight in Overweight/Obese Women to Lower Maternal-Fetal Morbidities: 59000 Singleton Term Pregnancies

Maternity booklet

From January 1st, 2001, to December 31st, 2019, the hospital records of all women who gave birth at the maternity of the University of South Reunion Island were abstracted in a standardized fashion. The study sample was drawn from the hospital perinatal database which prospectively records data of all mother-infant pairs since 2001. Information is collected at the time of delivery and at the infant hospital discharge and regularly audited by appropriately trained staff. This epidemiological perinatal database contains information on obstetrical risk factors, description of delivery, and maternal and neonatal outcomes. For the purpose of this study, records have been validated and have been used anonymously. All pregnant women in Reunion Island as part of the French National Health Care System have their prenatal visits, biological and ultrasonographic examinations, and anthropological characteristics recorded in a maternity booklet.

Preeclampsia, gestational hypertension and eclampsia were diagnosed according to the definition issued by the International Society for the Study of Hypertension in Pregnancy (ISSHP) relative to the guidelines in force at the year of pregnancy. In the present study, because optimal weight gain has been described only for term pregnancies, we have selected only women who delivered live births at term (37-42 weeks).
