  1. Fulltext. Maternal pregravid weight, age, and smoking status as risk factors for low birth weight births.

    Article - En anglais


    The Illinois Department of Public health, in cooperation with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), monitors trends in the prevalence of prenatal risk factors that are major predictors of infant mortality and low birth weight (LBW).

    Analyzed data from CDC are available to the department annually.

    During 1988, a total of 76, 767 records of Illinois women giving birth were submitted to CDC.

    These surveillance data support the fact that women older than 30 years who smoke and enter pregnancy underweight are at greatest risk of delivering LBW babies.
