Abstract


The aim of this research is to present that pregnant women with preeclampsia risk factor often give birth to infants with lower birth weight as well as infants who have lower Apgar score values. Material and methods: This prospective study included 240 pregnant women of different priority, aged 20 to 40, with one or more preeclampsia risk factors which are related to personal or family anamnesis and their infants. Results: Pregnant women with preeclampsia risk factors gave birth to infants with 19% chance of being hypotrophic, chance that infants might be hypotrophic is 3,16 (95%CI: 1,39-7,41) is bigger in this group of pregnant women. Giving birth to babies with lower birth weight is often with pregnant women who have more preeclampsia syndromes. Linear decline of Apgar score values has been evident with increased number of infants with lower birth weight, meaning more children with lower birth weight have lower Apgar score values at the 1st. minute of birth. Lower Apgar score values at birth is seen with infants from mothers who had more preeclampsia syndromes.

Conclusion: Frequency of giving birth to infants with lower birth weight as well as giving birth to infants with lower Apgar score values is often with mothers who have preeclampsia risk factors.
