Pre-eclampsia, cerebral palsy link explored
from MedPage Today
The risk that a woman who had pre-eclampsia would deliver a child with cerebral palsy (CP) was higher if the baby was born prematurely, was small at birth, or both, a population based cohort study found. Overall, children whose mothers had pre-eclampsia while pregnant had a higher risk of CP (unadjusted OR 2.5, 95 percent CI 2.0-3.2) than children whose mothers did not have the condition, researchers reported online in BMJ.
