Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A group of pregnant mothers above 35 years old were collected from the MCH centre in Kafr-El Zayat during a period of 10 months (82). A control group of mothers aged 20-30 years old were also selected during the same period (62). Those with specific diseases from both groups were excluded. During the repeated visits of those mothers to the MCH centre they were subjected to complete history taking, physical examination plus urine analysis & haemoglobin levelling. A special visit was performed by the researcher to the mothers on 7th day after labour to report on the outcome of labour. The present study revealed significant differences between mothers over 35 years and those of 20-30 years in the course of pregnancy, labour and their outcomes where the former group showed greater tendency to be at a higher risk.
