About the Edition

Numerous non-Canadian studies have shown that immigrant women experience higher rates of adverse maternal and perinatal events relative to the general non-immigrant population. A retrospective cohort study was undertaken to estimate the risk of adverse obstetrical and perinatal outcomes among foreign-born women residing in Toronto, using a validated obstetrical database within a downtown hospital. Main study outcomes were preterm delivery between 32 and 36 completed weeks" gestation, low infant birth weight and delivery by Cesarean section. Compared to Canadian-born women, those who were foreign-born had an associated adjusted odds ratio (OR) of 0.85 (95% confidence interval [CI] 0.64-1.14) for preterm delivery, 1.92 (95% CI 1.29-2.85) for low birth weight, and 1.16 (95% CI 1.01-1.34) for Cesarean delivery. This study found that foreign-born women had a non-significant lower risk of preterm birth, but a higher risk of low birth weight infants and Cesarean section, compared to Canadian-born women.
