The purpose of our study was to investigate the combined interactive effects of maternal age, parity, and smoking on pregnancy outcome.
This was a population-based Swedish study (n=538,829).
Multiple logistic regression analysis showed that the smoking-related effect on the relative increase in the odds ratio of low birth weight and preterm delivery was significantly greater among multiparous patients than nulliparous; among multiparas, smoking increased the odds ratios for low birth weight and preterm delivery by 2.4 and 1.6; the corresponding relative increases in the odds ratios among nulliparas were 1.7 and 1.1, respectively.
