Description:
The Group's remit from the Department of Health was to develop outcome indicators for 'normal' pregnancy and childbirth. Although the sense of what was required was clear' it proved difficult to obtain a definition of 'normal' pregnancy and childbirth. Many pregnancies start normally but complications develop later. Some complications are important and common outcomes of otherwise normal pregnancy. 2.2 The Group required a definition of normal pregnancy in order to: - have a clear idea of the topic under discussion - identify risk factors and interventions associated with the condition - define denominators for the outcome indicators required. 2.3 It was agreed that for the purposes of scoping the subject, the definition of normal pregnancy should be 'a pregnancy lasting at least 24 weeks' and thus leading to a registrable birth. For the purposes of this work the term baby has been used to include both baby and fetus. The indicators recommended relate in the main to singleton births.
