Effects of mother's age and parity status on body size of newborns


, : Effects of mother's age and parity status on body size of newborns. Zentralblatt für Gynakologie 103(10): 537-547

Body length of newborns was found to be influenced clearly by both parity and mother's age, as was borne out by an analysis of more than 21.000 births. Body lengths of newborns were found to increase along with rising order number of births and growing maternal age, yet, only up to a certain age limit beyond which newborn length tended to be stagnant or to decline, depending on parity status. An attempt is made to elucidate possible causes by correlating the author's own results with findings reported elsewhere in literature.
