Abstract [en]

Objective. To evaluate the effect of a weight-gain restriction programme for obese pregnant women on sickness absence days and pregnancy benefit days during pregnancy and postpartum.

Design. A prospective, controlled intervention study. The Swedish Social Security Agency's records were utilized to compile sickness absence and pregnancy benefit information.

Setting. Antenatal care clinics in the south-east of Sweden.

Subjects. One hundred fifty-five obese pregnant women who participated in a weight restriction program with weekly structured motivational and behavioural talks combined with aqua-aerobics during pregnancy. A total of 193 obese pregnant women with no intervention served as controls.

Main outcome measures. Sickness absence benefits and pregnancy benefits expressed as a percentage.

Results. On average women in the intervention group had 76.68 total full days of sickness absence benefit compared with 53.09days in the control group. Total full days of pregnancy benefits were 39.66% days and 41.41% for the intervention and control groups respectively. For the women who were on sick leave there were no differences between the groups in the amount of days taken.

Conclusions. Given the complexity of factors that have an influence on sickness absence leave, it is possible that programmes that do not address the influence of social aspects and attitudes towards sickness absence have limited effect.

Abstract [en]

The purpose of this study was to investigate the agreement between parent and child report of potential traumas experienced, to look at the agreement by interpersonal versus non-interpersonal traumas and by gender. A birth cohort of 1723 children and their parents was followed from three months until 12 years after birth (South East Sweden Birth Cohort (SESBiC) study). At 12-year follow-up, 1174 children, 875 mothers and 601 fathers completed the Life Incidence of Traumatic Events (LITE) questionnaire. Cohen's kappa was used to assess the agreement between parent and child reports of traumas experienced by the child. The group was split by gender and kappa statistics were computed to determine the level of agreement between the different informants. The sample was also analysed according to the nature of the traumatic event: interpersonal or non-interpersonal. Agreement was low across most types of traumas reported between parents and children and moderate between mothers and fathers. Agreement was lower when the trauma was interpersonal. No significant discrepancies in general were found on gender. The study highlights the importance of from whom the researcher collects information. In future research, it is important to study the significance the choice of information source might have on reported symptoms and behavioural problems.

Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to investigate if individuals born with sub-optimal birth characteristics have reduced probability of reproducing in adulthood. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanUsing population-based registries, the authors included 522 216 males and 494 692 females born between 1973 and 1983 and examined their reproductive status as of 2006. Outcome measure was the hazard ratio (HR) of reproducing. Adjustments were made for socio-economic factors. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanMales and females born very premature displayed a reduced probability of reproducing [HR 0.78, 95 confidence interval (CI): 0.700.86 for males; HR 0.81, CI: 0.750.88 for females]. Likewise for very low birthweight (HR 0.83, CI: 0.710.95 for males; HR 0.80, 95 CI: 0.720.89 for females). Individuals born large for gestational age (LGA) displayed no significant changes. Males born small for gestational age (SGA) had a 9 lower reproductive rate (CI: 0.890.94) and that reduction increased as the individuals aged. Women born SGA tended to start reproducing at an earlier age. less thanbrgreater than less thanbrgreater thanThe results suggest that being born with low birthweight, premature or SGA (for males) is associated with a reduced probability of reproducing as an adult. LGA shows no statistically significant relationship with future reproduction.

Abstract [en]

Objective: To perform a cost comparison of a weight gain restriction programme for obese pregnant women with standard antenatal care, and to identify if there were differences in healthcare costs within the intervention group related to degree of gestational weight gain or degree of obesity at programme entry. Study design: A comparison of mean healthcare costs for participants of an intervention study at antenatal care clinics with controls in south-east Sweden. Methods: In total, 155 women in an intervention group attempted to restrict their gestational weight gain to less than7 kg. The control group comprised 193 women. Mean costs during pregnancy, delivery and the neonatal period were compared with the costs of standard care. Costs were converted from Swedish Kronor to Euros ((sic)). Results: Healthcare costs during pregnancy were lower in the intervention group. There was no significant difference in total healthcare costs (i.e. sum of costs during pregnancy, delivery and the neonatal period) between the intervention group and the control group. Within the intervention group, the subgroup that gained 4.5-9.5 kg had the lowest costs. The total cost, including intervention costs, was (sic)1283 more per woman/ infant in the intervention group compared with the control group (P = 0.025). The degree of obesity at programme entry had no bearing on the outcome. Conclusions: The weight gain restriction programme for obese pregnant women was effective in restricting gestational weight gain to less than7 kg, but had a higher total cost compared with standard antenatal care.
