Maternal diabetes is a major risk factor for fetal overgrowth, which is associated with poor outcomes including stillbirth, neonatal morbidity and increased risk of diabetes in adulthood.

  Dr A Heazell, Dr M Dilworth, Dr M Desforges
Applications accepted all year round

Funding Type

PhD Type

Prolonged pregnancy (>41 weeks gestation) is associated with an increase in perinatal mortality (the death of a baby before or shortly after birth) from a nadir of 1 per 1,000 births at 39 weeks’ to 3 per 1,000 births at 41 weeks which continues to rise beyond this time.
