Background A high maternal prepregnancy body mass index has been associated with lower offspring IQ, but it is unclear if the relationship is causal. To explore this, our objectives were to compare maternal and paternal estimates and to assess whether certain factors mediate the association. Methods We analysed data from the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children, which initially recruited 14 541 women residing in Avon, UK, with an expected date of delivery in 1991–1992. Data were colle...

Abstract Objective Short and long interpregnancy intervals (IPIs) have been associated with various adverse outcomes, and a 2016 American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists' Committee Opinion recommends an optimal IPI of 18 months to 5 years. Descriptive data on the IPI in Canada are lacking. The objective of this study was to examine IPIs in a Manitoba cohort. Methods The study analyzed a subset of records from a larger dataset used to examine the IPI and adverse perinatal outcomes. For...

Abstract Background Neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) is a collection of symptoms that occurs primarily due to antenatal opioid exposure. National data on incidence, hospital resource utilization, and demographic features of NAS have not been previously described for Canada. Methods Secondary analysis was performed with data from hospitals in all Canadian provinces and territories, excluding Quebec. Infants with NAS were identified by searching for ICD-10-CA code P96.1 in the Canadian Institute...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the sensitivity and positive predictive value (PPV) of administrative health and education data for identifying cases of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in Manitoba, and to recommend a surveillance case definition. METHODS: Four service providers abstracted information on children who had been clinically diagnosed with ASD (“sensitivity cohort”). That information was linked to Manitoba’s administrative health and education data and records were extracted into the study dat...

Abstract Objective Congenital anomalies are a serious public health issue, and relatively few modifiable risk factors have been identified. Our objective was to investigate one such potential risk factor, the interpregnancy interval (IPI). Methods We conducted a secondary analysis of data housed at the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy. In-hospital live births and stillbirths of at least 20 weeks' gestation were identified, and consecutive births to the same mother were grouped into sibling pair...

Abstract Objective To examine the association between the interpregnancy interval (IPI) and preterm birth, low birth weight, and SGA birth in a developed country with universal health coverage. Methods We conducted a secondary analysis of data housed at the Manitoba Centre for Health Policy. All live births in Manitoba hospitals over a 29-year period were identified and consecutive births to the same mother were grouped into sibling pairs to calculate the IPI for the younger siblings. Logistic r...

Objective To examine the impact of a rooming-in program for infants at risk of neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS) on the need for pharmacologic treatment and length of hospitalization. Study Design Our hospital implemented a rooming-in program for newborns at risk of NAS in June 2013. Previously, standard care was to admit these infants to the neonatal intensive care unit. Charts were reviewed to abstract data on at-risk infants born in the 13-month periods prior and subsequent to implementation...
