Placenta is very essential and highly feto-material organ which maintain the normal pregnancy and fetus development. The present study was conducted to assess the characteristics of placenta and neonatal outcome.
Purpose: The purpose of the study was to assess the Neonatal outcome, to associate the characteristics of Placenta with neonatal outcome. To associate the characteristics of Placenta with selected demographical variables, To associate Neonatal outcome with selected demographical variables.
Material and methods: The research approach adopted for this study quantitative approach and research design adopted for the study Descriptive design. Using non probability purposive sampling technique 100 mothers were enrolled for the study during their intra-natal period and monitored throughout.
Results: Observable and measurable placental outcome is significantly associated with APGAR score at 1 minute and APGAR score at 5 minute (p-value <0.05). Placental weight, and observable placental outcome and measurable placental outcome is associated with past medical history and history of minor ailments of pregnancy (p-value <0.05). Significant association is found between APGAR 5 minute and type of diet, neonate weight and chest circumference is associated with type of diet and past medical history, chest circumference and head circumference are associated with age, type of diet and past medical history, and history of minor ailments; reflexes are associated with BMI.
Keeping in view the research findings the same kind of research can be replicated in large setting. Placental examination and neonatal outcome should be checked to understand the co-relation between both.
