Abstract

In a previous Data Note, we outlined the data obtained from clinical obstetric records concerning many details of the pregnancies resulting in the births of the children in the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC). Here we describe the data that have been abstracted from medical records concerning the fetus and neonate. Full details concerning the selection biases regarding the data abstracted are outlined in the previous Data Note.
The records that have been abstracted, and described in this Data Note, concern the health of the fetus (measured in relation to the results of fetal monitoring, presentation at various stages of pregnancy, and the method of delivery) as well as the status of the newborn immediately post-delivery. Details of signs, symptoms and treatments of this population of new-born babies, as recorded in the clinical records, are described for the time during which they were in hospital or under the care of a designated midwife.
These data add depth to the information collected from elsewhere concerning this period of the child’s life: from the questionnaires completed at the time by the mother; and clinical details from neonatal intensive or special care units which will be detailed in a further Data Note.
