Researchers to Study Earlier Delivery of Large Babies

Researchers to Study Earlier Delivery of Large Babies

A study dubbed the “Big Baby Trial” is being carried out by academics in the UK to discover if delivering large babies before full term will minimize complications that can occur during birth. One such complication that can occur during delivery is “turtling,” an event where the mother has difficulty delivering her baby’s shoulders after the head has come out.  Also known as a shoulder dystocia, this can be extremely traumatic and painful for both mother and child, and may lead to conditions such as Erb’s Palsy. The study, which will be conducted over a three and a half year period, will include a two-year recruitment of 4,000 women whose pregnancies are deemed large for gestational age.  Those leading the trial hope that the results could help prevent or at least minimize the number of families affected by Erb’s Palsy.
