Obstetrics & Gynecology
The California Maternal Quality Care Collaborative receives funding to develop evidence-based strategies that address disparities in maternal health.
Less sleep, activity linked to prematurity
Data from wearables show that deviations from normal sleep and activity in pregnancy are connected to a risk for premature delivery, a Stanford Medicine-led study found.
Grant to address maternal complications
The funding will go toward a center to decrease the incidence and downstream morbidities of postpartum hemorrhage.
Common conditions driving birth inequity
Untreated high blood pressure and anemia in pregnancy help explain why childbirth complications are more common in non-white populations, two studies led by Stanford Medicine researchers found.
Abortion bans’ effect on heart defect
Abortion restrictions will increase the number of newborns with serious heart defects, which could strain hospital resources already in short supply, according to a Stanford Medicine study.
Reversing a cystic fibrosis complication before birth
Giving a new cystic fibrosis medication to a pregnant woman who carries the gene for the disease was unexpectedly beneficial for her fetus, a Stanford Medicine team found.
IVF screening reduces costs
Stanford Medicine researchers find that using in vitro fertilization with testing embryos for inherited diseases would significantly reduce costs.
Hemorrhage toolkit is cost-effective
A statewide quality-improvement project to treat excessive bleeding during childbirth averts $9 million annually in California’s health care costs, a Stanford Medicine-led study found.
LeRoy Heinrichs dies at 90
The Stanford Medicine professor emeritus of obstetrics and gynecology was an early adopter of less invasive surgical techniques, a pioneer in treating infertility and an evangelist for virtual medical training.
Blood biomarkers predict labor onset
About three weeks before delivery, a pregnant woman’s body shifts into a pre-labor phase characterized by changes in immune, hormonal and blood-clotting signals.
