Abstract:
Severe maternal anaemia is associated with negative impact on the outcome of the newborn. The objective was to correlate the degree of maternal anaemia with outcome of the neonate. Anaemic and non anaemic pregnant women admitted in labor room after 24 weeks gestation for delivery were selected. Delivery was conducted and assessment of the neonate was carefully done and recorded. Mean Apgar score, gestational age at delivery and birth weight were lower in neonates of severely anaemic women. They had higher admission rate in neonatal intensive care unit. The associations were statistically highly significant (p value-0.05). Thus, newborns of severely anaemic mothers should also be carefully assessed. Greater care of these new-borns is required and hence higher NICU admissions rate.
