    Foetal environment and obstetrical complication

    We consider it necessary to conduct further studies on the condition of the foetus so that its condition may be evaluated at any moment in the gestation period.

    We do possess methods allowing us to determine the welfare situation of the foetus but when these methods show that the foetus may be in a risk situation, we do not have precise diagnostic tests to quantify the foetal condition with a view to making an accurate diagnosis and to correctly adapting the obstetric action.

    Our main sub-lines of research are the following:

    • Risk of loss of foetal welfare.
    • Preterm delivery. Premature newborn.
    • Foetal growth retardation.
