The author discusses the study which examines the correlation between the first trimester fetal growth and the risk factor of cardiovascular disease in children. The study uses longitudinal cohort analysis of pregnant women and their offspring in Rotterdam, the Netherlands to determine the association of cardiovascular disease and birth weight. Results show that the first trimester fetal growth is associated with risk of cardiovascular disease in childhood.
