Abstract:

Pregnancy is one of the most critical and unique period in a woman’s life cycle. The present longitudinal study was undertaken to assess the influence of certain factors on mode of delivery and birth weight in urban pregnant women visiting hospitals for regular ANC check-up. Maternal anthropometric measurements like height and weight are routinely taken in antenatal care clinics. These measurements beside the size of the foot may be used to predict the mode of delivery in nulliparous women. The objectives of the study were to investigate the relation between maternal factors and the mode of delivery in nulliparous women in Albatool Teaching Hospital. This was a cross sectional, hospital- based study. A questionnaire was used to collect basic data. Anthropometric measurements which included maternal weight, height and length of the foot were taken according to patients sayings higher number of women with average BMI [26/51(50.9%)] and underweight [6/7(85.7%)] delivered vaginally than in women with high body mass index [14/42(33.3%)] p value ˂ 0.001, higher women with tall staure [5/7(71.4%)] delivered vaginally than in women with average [25/60(41%)] and short stature [16/33(48%)] p value =0.01.Thereis no relationship between foot size and mode of delivery. Women with high body mass index are more likely to deliver by cesarean section Women with short stature are more likely to deliver by cesarean section Foot size doesn’t affect the mode of delivery.
