Abstract

Introduction: Hypertension (HTN) is the most common medical problem encountered in pregnancy and is a leading cause of perinatal and maternal complication. Maternal hypertension, particularly conditions such as preeclampsia and gestational hypertension, can have a wide range of complications for neonates. Methods and materials: A comparative observational cohort study was conducted, including pregnant women with and without hypertension who received prenatal care at Enam Medical College and Hospital, Dhaka, Bangladesh between July 2022 and June 2023. Clinical data, including maternal age, gestational age at diagnosis, parity, and mode of delivery were collected. Result: Pregnancy outcomes, such as maternal complications, hypertension, neonatal birth weight, and other relevant parameters were also assessed. A total of 968 pregnant women were included in the analysis, 146 were diagnosed with HTN and 822 without HTN. This study sheds light on the critical link between maternal hypertension and adverse neonatal outcomes in the unique context of Bangladesh. Conclusion: The findings underscore the importance of early detection and management of maternal hypertension to mitigate the associated risks for neonates. Implementation of targeted interventions and improved antenatal care protocols may prove instrumental in reducing the incidence of adverse neonatal outcomes in this population.
