Born in Peel: Examining Maternal and Infant Health

Arrow BulletGeneral Birth Outcomes

Girl and babyThis chapter provides a detailed examination of the characteristics of Peel mothers and their infants. Characteristics of the mother which are examined include their age group, the number of times they have given birth, the type of birth (singleton or multiple) and their geographic region of birth. Infant characteristics examined include birth weight, gestational age at birth and the presence of congenital anomalies. Within this chapter low birth weight (defined as having a birth weight less than 2,500 grams) is examined in-depth, focusing on the two components of this indicator: preterm birth (birth prior to 37 weeks gestation) and intrauterine growth restriction.
