Study: Asthma May Increase Risk of Problems During Pregnancy and Delivery

Study: Asthma May Increase Risk of Problems During Pregnancy and Delivery

According to a study from Sweden’s Karolinska Institutet, pregnant women who have asthma have a higher risk of developing preeclampsia and delivering a baby that is underweight. Published in the Journal of Allergy and Clinical Immunology: In Practice, the study analyzed more than 1 million Swedish pregnancies from roughly 700,000 women over thirteen years. Ten percent of the babies studied were born to a mother with asthma. “We found that the risk of preeclampsia is 17 percent higher in women with asthma compared to women without asthma,” according to the study’s lead author Dr. Gustaf Rejnö. The researchers also suggested that women with asthma were more likely to deliver underweight babies, have instrumental deliveries, caesarean sections, or have shorter pregnancies. Dr. Rejnö concluded that “…well-controlled asthma during pregnancy could reduce the relative incidence of complications during pregnancy and childbirth.”
