More Birth Complications During the Night

by Robert D'Iorio

A recent study of more than 700,000 births found that infant deaths and admission to the neonatal intensive care units were 32 to 47 percent higher during night time deliveries.

These numbers were in line with all admissions in to the intensive care units leading researches to the conclusion that the cause may be that staff fatigue or experience level may be a factor.
