Despite many giant leaps forward, there is a continuous struggle with tragic and often preventable deaths related to poor maternal health. Poor maternal health and birth outcomes can be found worldwide, and improving the health of mothers and babies is an important public health priority. Cardiovascular disease constitutes nearly 30% of pregnancy-related deaths . Preeclampsia, a hypertensive pregnancy diagnosed before 20 weeks’ gestation, may result in significant maternal, fetal, and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Researchers and practitioners in the field are constantly searching for advances in the prevention, care, and diagnosis of pregnancy disorders. Developing strategies for reducing the risk factors which predispose the population to these complications, and for reducing the acute and long-term complications, are crucial to decreasing the full impact of the condition.
A Special Issue of IJERPH is being organized to present a collection of innovative, high-quality research studies focused on pregnancy health and its impact on feto-placental growth. We cordially invite authors to submit qualitative and quantitative studies and reviews addressing original research and case studies that fill in the current knowledge gaps or conduct in-depth analysis of the present state of knowledge
