A randomized trial of nurse-midwifery prenatal care to reduce low birth weight.
In a randomized, controlled trial in five regional centers with state health department clinics, 1458 women at high risk for low birth weight (LBW) outcome received either prenatal interventions provided by nurse-midwives and nurses under their supervision or the standard high-risk prenatal care provided by obstetricians.
Although the LBW rate was lower in the intervention group than in the control group, the observed difference was not statistically significant.
