They've stopped carrying research into carrying


In Sweden, a study on carrying babies was suspended because researchers said it would be unethical to continue.

However, since these risks are small, many women in the study should be screened to carry the results to be statistically significant.A study by the head of the Sahlgrenska University College in Gothenburg examined 10,000 women, based on data from 14 schools. Women were randomly assigned to study in the 40th week of gestation; Born a year ago, in October 2018, research was stopped, and a quarter of the target number was tested on women only. However, the six deaths suggest that the risk of carrying a pregnancy by week 43 is significantly increased. In the group of pregnancies that died at week 42, no babies died. Swedish television first reported the results, but researchers rejected the results, in a medical journal. However, a doctoral dissertation from one of the researchers includes the results, which were recently published on the website of the University of Gothenburg. The author of his thesis concluded that"the immediate implication of this study may be to change the clinical guidelines to recommend a parental induction at the latest at week 41 + 0". The Sahlgrenska University Board has also announced that it will change its pregnancy management policy based on the results. - So far, we have been waiting for the scientific results to prove that the risk of having the baby carried by the mother two weeks away is greater, said the television host who told the hospital. from now on, it is recommended that you initiate childbirth at week 41.Among the participating hospitals in the study, one has changed his policy since the two deaths, and other hospitals have announced that they will follow their example. A Swedish charity that deals with support for parents who have lost their babies, has urged hospitals across the country to change their policy on carrying children immediately. - Because of the ethical suspension of the study, it would be unethical for us not to disclose the results said Malin ASP, chairman of the Swedish Infant Death Foundation, who said the results have the potential to save the lives of over-infants. Sarah Kenyon, a professor at the University of Birmingham is statistically different from the two groups, so the results should be considered in current practice. In the United Kingdom, the National Health Service (NHS) is encouraging all women who have not begun a natural birth at week 42. According to their research, one woman gives birth without a medical intervention after the 41st week. A study conducted in the United States last year by a co-author, Professor Robert M. Silver thinks it's okay to start a baby at the beginning of week 40, According to him, the Swedish research is fully consistent with the data available. - The risk of complications is still low after the beginning of week 40, but as the number of weeks in pregnancy increases, so does the risk of stillbirth. And previous births would also reduce the number of cesarean sections - the professor explained.Related links:
