  • Baby preparation and worry scale (Baby-PAWS): Instrument development and psychometric evaluation. [Journal Article]
    Early Hum Dev. 2020 May 22; 147:105080.Erickson NL, Neumann AA, … Gartstein MA
  • CONCLUSIONS: Two factor-analytic techniques indicated a three-factor structure, with internal consistency for all three components and the overall scale. We labeled the three factors: Self and Partner Worry, Non-parental Childcare Worry, and Baby Caregiving Worry, based on item content. Higher Baby-PAWS scores were associated with greater anxiety and depression in the third trimester. Predictive links with postpartum anxiety/depression symptoms and infant temperament were observed for the overall Baby-PAWS score and Self and Partner Worry factor. Although this instrument requires further evaluation, it offers promising utility in research and clinical settings.

  • Diagnosis of a fetal anomaly in pregnancy increases the risk for perinatal mental health difficulties, including anxiety, depression, and traumatic stress among expectant parents.

  • Extreme elevations of alkaline phosphatase in pregnancy: A case report. [Case Reports]
    Case Rep Womens Health. 2020 Jul; 27:e00214.Stanley Z, Vignes K, Marcum M
  • CONCLUSIONS: The literature proposes that elevation of the placental isotype of ALP could be a marker for placental insufficiency, preterm delivery, or infants born large for gestational age. We report a case with delivery of a normal infant and no placental pathology at term.
  • Pneumorrhachis After an Upper Respiratory Infection: A Case Report of a Rare Phenomenon. [Case Reports]
    Cureus. 2020 Apr 22; 12(4):e7784.Llewellyn K, Johnson R, … Seibly JM
  • Pneumorrhachis (PR) is the presence of free air within the spinal canal. It is generally benign and improves with conservative management. Case reports and a literature review exist documenting the existence and potential pathogenesis of this phenomenon, but no evidence-based guidelines exist documenting what treatment, if any, is indicated for this condition. We present a case of a 21-year-old m…
  • Planning for high-risk maternity patients: A new approach. [Journal Article]

  • Intracranial emergencies during pregnancy requiring urgent neurosurgical treatment. [Journal Article]
    Clin Neurol Neurosurg. 2020 May 12; 195:105905.Esmaeilzadeh M, Uksul N, … Krauss JK
  • CONCLUSIONS: The individualized treatment approach in this peculiar obstetric scenario needs to consider various issues such as the clinical condition of the pregnant woman, prognosis of the disease, gestational age and the status of the pregnancy. The primary concern in this context must be the mother`s health and safety. Caesarean section is the primary mode of delivery in most cases. While contemporary care can insure survival for the majority of infants, maternal mortality still poses an extraordinary challenge. Interdisciplinary consulting of the patient and/or her family is necessary to develop a treatment strategy for both the expectant woman and her offspring.
  • Use of fertility services in Australian lesbian, bisexual and queer women's pathways to parenthood. [Journal Article]
    Aust N Z J Obstet Gynaecol. 2020 May 18 [Online ahead of print]Power J, Dempsey D, … Lau M
  • CONCLUSIONS: These findings indicate that use of fertility clinics to access donor sperm is common for LBQ women, including those with no known fertility problems, and that most women who access donor sperm conceive using IVF rather than intrauterine insemination. More needs to be known about the context and reasons for this, including factors that influence LBQ women's decision making on their pathway to parenthood.
  • Home Collection of Products of Conception: Can Chromosomal Analysis be Obtained? [Journal Article]
    J Gynecol Obstet Hum Reprod. 2020 May 14 [Online ahead of print]Siegel M, Amato P, … Krieg S
  • CONCLUSIONS: In our study, D&C was the superior method to obtain POCs for chromosomal analysis following a miscarriage, but medical and expectant management still had clinically acceptable success rates as well. Although further study is indicated, this small case series suggests that patient counselling regarding miscarriage management and desired chromosomal analysis should continue to include misoprostol and expectant management as inferior but still appropriate alternatives to D&C.

    Am Fam Physician. 2020 May 15; 101(10):599-606.Hendriks E, Rosenberg R, Prine L
