It is my pleasure to announce the launch of a new Special Issue of Healthcare on “Pregnancy and Perinatal Health”. This is of course a particularly broad subject which covers all the pathologies of pregnancy that have an impact on the fetus, as well as all the diseases of the fetus and the newborn. Some examples of pathologies of pregnancy and perinatal health include:
1. Perinatal Hematology
Point on rhesus anemia
Point on neonatal thrombocytopenia
Point on leukemia and oncology in pregnant women
Point on leukemia and oncology in neonate
Point on neonatal hemophilia
2. Donation in Perinatology
Donation—a philosopher's perspective
Donation of human milk
Cord blood donation and use
Oocyte, embryo, and sperm donation
Loan of uterus
3. Diseases in pregnancy that affect the newborn
Diabetes in pregnant women and newborns
Maternal myopathies and newborns
Myasthenia gravis and newborn
Maternal metabolic diseases and newborns
COVID-19 in pregnant mothers and neonatal care
Congenital malformations (with antenatal diagnostic)
The deadline of submission is 28 February 2022.
I look forward to receiving your abstracts on these topics; the authors of the most outstanding abstracts will be invited to give an oral presentation to the next congress of AEEP in Paris on 17–18 November 2021. Whether AEEP will be in person or virtual is yet to be determined and will be decided based on the situation around the COVID-19 pandemic at that time. Speakers must be members of AEEP/EAPE (do note that registration is EUR 60/year).
