Pregnant Women With Bipolar Disorder May Have Higher Risk of Premature Birth

FRIDAY, Nov. 9 (HealthDay News) -- Women with treated and untreated bipolar disorder are more likely to give birth prematurely -- before 37 weeks -- and have other pregnancy and birth complications, according to a new study.

The study was published online Nov. 8 in the journal BMJ.

The risk was 37.5 percent for treated women, about 31 percent for untreated women and 21 percent for those without bipolar disorder.

Treated and untreated mothers also were more likely to give birth prematurely than women without bipolar disorder: 8.1 percent, 7.6 percent and 4.8 percent, respectively.

Babies born to untreated mothers were more likely to have a small head and to have episodes of low blood sugar levels than those born to mothers without bipolar disorder, said the researchers from Uppsala University and the Karolinska Institute.
