Biography: Ibtisam Titi


The incident of Gestational Diabetes Mellitus (GDM) and Hypertension disorders during pregnancy (HDP) are increasing and are associated with adverse pregnancy outcome. Appropriate prenatal and postnatal follow up care was shown to control and reduce the adverse health outcomes on mothers and their children. Literature was collected from different sources including PubMed. This study aims to evaluate antennal and postnatal care for pregnant women with GDM and HDP at the Ministry of Health high risk pregnancies (HRP) clinics in Hebron district for the year 2009 and to identify the determinants of prenatal and postnatal management of the adverse maternal complications related to GDM and HDP. All files of women registered at the main six HRP clinics from January 1 to December 31 in 2009 were investigated to estimate prevalence of GD and GH. Then, from October 1, 2010 to January 31, 2011 we followed up all the women who during last delivery in 2009 had GD and/or GH. also, women’s files with other complications were randomly selected as comparative group. A questionnaire interview was performed. SPSS version 16 was used in data analyses(p<0·05). We found significant differences of complications between cases and the comparison groups and also cases’ infants suffered from all complications in higher percentage than the comparison group.
