Abstract Objective: To evaluate neonatal outcomes in late preterm infants delivered due to preeclampsia. Methods: A retrospective cohort of 3,580 infants delivered at 32 0/7 to 36 6/7 weeks gestation was examined. Neonatal outcomes of infants delivered due to preeclampsia were compared with outcomes of infants delivered prematurely due to other etiologies. Multivariate logistic regression was used to analyze the association between preeclampsia and the neonatal outcomes. Results: Infants of women with preeclampsia were more likely to be SGA (26.8% versus 8.4%). They were also more likely to be admitted to the ICN (54.3% versus 39.0%); however, they were less likely to suffer a neonatal death (2.2% versus 3.4%). Infants born to women with preeclampsia had similar rates of RDS (19.8% versus 14.2%). Discussion: Neonatal outcomes in late preterm infants born to preeclamptic mothers are significantly different from outcomes in late preterm neonates delivered due to other indications.
