Antenatal care visits during pregnancy and their effect on maternal and fetal outcomes in pre-eclamptic patients

Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 2016

Findings showed women who attended an inadequate number of antenatal care visits had a significantly higher risk of post-partum hemorrhage, eclampsia, and intensive care unit admission compared with women who attended an adequate number of visits. Women who attended an inadequate number of visits also had a 12-fold increase in risk of a poor maternal outcome, a 53-fold increase in risk of a poor fetal outcome and a significantly higher risk of neonatal mortality in comparison to women who attended an adequate number of antenatal visits.
