Examination of the relationships between different birthweights and various gestational parameters
Keywords:Pregnancy, Birth weight, Age, Zinc, Gravida
Aim: The aim of the study is to assess the relationship between different birth weights and some pregnancy parameters. If there is a relationship, which is the relationship between birth parameters and birth weight. What are the importance levels of these relationships?
Methods: The significant levels of the relationships for these data were statistically examined. 18-39 years old, total 276 patients were investigated, the birth weights were grouped into 7 groups were included. Multiple comparison tests were performed between the groups by weight levels for the examined parameters, and different groups were determined by testing significance levels at 95% confidence interval using Multivariate Analysis of Variance (MANOVA). For the 7 different weight groups formed, correlation analysis was performed in order to determine the correlation coefficients among the gestational parameters, i.e., age range, gravida, mode of delivery, gestational age, zinc range and live/stillbirth status and the correlation levels among these parameters were determined
Results: Birth weights decreased with increasing maternal age and gravida during pregnancy. Significant correlations were found between birth weight and examined birth parameters.
Conclusion: Based on the results of this study, it is suggested that birth weight of the patient should be taken into account and the risky birth weight patient group should be followed according to gravida, zinc range, gestational age and live/stillbirth status.
