Placental size at 19 weeks predicts offspring bone mass at birth: Findings from the Southampton Women's Survey

Abstract:

Objectives: In this study we investigate the relationships between placental size and neonatal bone mass and body composition, in a population-based cohort. Study design: 914 mother-neonate pairs were included. Placental dimensions were measured via ultrasound at 19 weeks gestation. Dual X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) was performed on the neonates within the first two weeks of life. Results: We observed positive relationships between placental volume at 19 weeks, and neonatal bone area (BA; r = 0...
