Abstract :

Introduction: Prematurity is a common condition. It is responsible in Morocco for a morbidity and neonatal mortality rate. Objective: The objective of the study is to assess the conditions of women who give birth prematurely. Materials and methods: All preterm infants hospitalized during the year 2016 were included in this study. The analysis of the files identified the different parametersâ?? mothers. Results: The rate of admission of premature babies to the service is 19%. The most common maternal age was between 18 and 35 years of age (80%). 68% of women are multiparous, and more than 40% of women have a history of miscarriage. Pregnancy was not followed in 27% of cases, antenatal corticosteroids were administered in 45% of cases, pregnancy was multiple in 25%, premature rupture of membranes was noted in 36% of cases, and maternal infection was 33%. Birthing was predominant with a rate of 73%. Most premature babies admitted to the service (64%) come from birth delivered at the university hospital centre. Non-induced prematurity accounts for the majority of cases with 78% of cases. The overall prematurity mortality rate is 62% among all preterm infants. Conclusion: Prevention would reduce the rate of prematurity and improve its management, especially through close obstetricpediatric collaboration.
