Applications accepted all year round
Fetal growth restriction (FGR) is a serious pregnancy complication, which affects 3-8% of pregnancies and is associated with a significant increase in perinatal…
  Impact of intermittent maternal fasting on placental calcium transport and fetal skeletal development
