Abstract

Introduction: Quality monitoring of pregnancy is defined by several clinical, biological and radiological parameters that can influence neonatal outcome.

Materials and Methods: A population of 1,000 women were studied in pregnancy using labor monitoring indicators and the status of their newborns at birth was noted. Statistical analysis was used to establish the elements influencing neonatal morbidity.

Results: The average age of women in labor was 28.25 years. Pregnancy was followed in 45.4%. It was provided by the dispensary in 58.6%. 80.4% of newborns were appropriate of age and full term in 83.7%. 12.3% of newborns have been hospitalized in the immediate postnatal life due to major risk of infection in 53%. Of these 47% of hospital admissions were in neonatology unit. The average hospitalization duration was 15 days. Using simple and multiple regression, improper monitoring of pregnancy was associated with hospitalization of neonates.

Conclusion: Improving the quality of monitoring of pregnancy is one factor among others that can reduce neonatal morbidity.

Keywords: Monitoring of pregnancy, hospitalization, neonatal morbidity
