The article focuses on an analysis which evaluated the association between adolescent childbearing and early offspring mortality in three birth cohort studies from Pelotas in Southern Brazil. It was concluded that the social and environmental factors may be more significant than maternal biologic immaturity. As stated, no interactions between maternal age and cohort year were found.

    Background: Although rare, placental abruption is implicated in disproportionately high rates of perinatal morbidity and mortality. Understanding geographic and temporal variations may provide insights into possible amenable factors of abruption. We examined abruption frequencies by maternal...
